In January, I posted about using Sico Muse (PPG's Canadian brand of paint in their top quality line) on my kitchen walls. I was too excited at the time to wait until I had completely finished painting to post, so at the time of that post I still had to finish painting all around the kitchen cabinets. This post is to show you the completely finished walls and talk a bit more about my new favourite paint . . . Sico Muse in Soft Matte! This paint is not only very flat (therefore hides wall blemishes), it is durable/scrubbable, and feels like a cross between satin and silk to the touch.
Lastly, I want to share a really cool feature of the Muse paint . . . you can use it as a chalkboard! The Soft Matte (which I used) is a completely flat paint. After you allow your freshly painted wall to cure for 14 days, you can write on it with chalk! No seasoning required as with specific chalkboard paint. No leftover messy chalk residue on the wall after you wash off the chalk like you get with traditional chalkboard. And, you can have any color chalkboard wall you wish! I tested it out today! I found white chalk and wrote you a note on my kitchen wall.
The Sico Muse Soft Matte paint in the PPG color "Greyhound" was given to me by our local PPG rep to try out and blog my experiences. Opinions expressed are completely my own.
