    Great ideas! Can you actually buy chalk paint in a spray form, do you know? And where do you get it from? Hardware stores? Craft stores??

    Rust-Oleum sells it in spray can. You should be able to find it at hardware or craft stores but it may depend on your location. It is sold at Amazon online though.

    You can buy it at Lowes in quarts. It’s Valspar latex chalkboard paint. If you want it lightened, too, you can ask the paint dept employees to add tint to it. (I work at Lowes in the paint dept.)

    Thank you for the inspiring photos of what you can do with chalkboard paint! Have you ever tried any of these using chalk paint? I’ve used it on furniture several times, but not on bottles…does the chalkboard paint scrape off the glass easily?
