On Michelle's blog she writes that she used Behr paints from The Home Depot. The white stripe in entryway was done with Ultra White by Behr, but she doesn't remember the name of the gray stripe. I suggest trying Garden Wall 730D-4. For additional colors, you can leave a question on Michelle's blog: http://www.windhula.blogspot.com/

What Houzz contributors are saying:

As Michelle states, "Projects always take triple the time and triple the money you originally plan for. However, the time and effort are always worth it in the end." One wall of the entryway is covered in chalkboard paint — the perfect spot to jot down a quick note or write a favorite quote.
Lily Gahagan added this to Grown-Up Ideas for Chalkboard Paint
The entryway is a prime spot for notes on things to do, errands to run and dates to remember... Or to give visitors a taste of your sense of humor.
Erin Lang Norris added this to 12 Ways to Avoid Entryway Chaos
Personality. Adding something that will make you feel at home and your house guests feel welcome is a gateway to happiness and conversation once you're inside. This chalkboard shows off this family's fun and creative style, and also gives them a place to see daily reminders before they leave for the day.
This hilarious entryway reminder in DIY design blogger Michelle Hinkley's home probably applies to most families out there.
Houzz added this to Inscription
Personal mottoes made with stencils and decals make less-permanent inscriptions for those with evolving tastes. Even a motto drawn in chalk can have the resonance of an inscription.
Becky Harris added this to The Best Chalkboard Wall Art on Houzz
Some people express some great and hilarious messages on their chalkboards. “Live. Laugh. Love.” is so 2000. These folks are miles above that schmaltz.
“Remember … As far as anyone knows, we’re a perfectly normal family.” — hilarious homeownersUsually I would not include an ideabook I wrote in one of these roundups, but Houzz user Joanne Padvaiskas told me to, and I aim to please. So in the spirit of all the fun I saw this week all over Houzz, I collected the best chalkboard art I’ve seen around the site. Full story: The Best Chalkboard Wall Art on Houzz

6. Share humor with family. Shared humor strengthens relationships and encourages teamwork. As well as providing a place to organize household appointments and activities, a big chalkboard like this one gives all family members their say and can be a great source of running jokes. Make a place where everyone is free to express his or her inner comedian, such as a giant pegboard or a wall, tabletop or kitchen cupboard door painted with chalkboard paint. Chalkboard paint isn’t just black anymore — it comes in all kinds of colors, and you can even make your own.See how to make chalkboard board paint in your favorite color
