“This paint can turn virtually any interior surface into a chalkboard. We are very excited to have this new line of paint,” says Jeanne Babel, Babel’s Vice President. “It’s fun to watch our customers and home design staff discover the creative possibilities.”
The new paint, known as the Benjamin Moore Chalkboard Paint (308) is a latex topcoat with an eggshell finish, that is easy to apply, and dries in a matter of hours. The surface is durable, easy to clean, and fully washable. It is ideal for a child's bedroom or playroom, and is also being used to paint surfaces in the kitchen- which can serve as a message center for shopping lists and household reminders. Benjamin Moore Chalkboard Paint is sold in quarts only, and retails for $21.99.

Victor Babel, Sr. and his wife, Mickey, opened the first Babel's store in 1950 in his hometown of Norwood, MA. Babel's quickly developed a reputation for quality paint and wallpaper products, personalized service and attention to detail.
Twenty years later, Victor and Mickey's youngest son, Vic, Jr. with the support and partnership of his wife Jeanne, the second generation of Babel's took over the business and began seeking opportunities for growth.
In the early 1990's it became clear that Babel's was not just a paint and wallpaper store. With the addition of professional designers, it had grown into a full-service decorating center. In 1994, the store name was officially changed to Babel's Paint & Decorating Store.
In 1996 Vic and Jeanne opened their second store in Jeanne's hometown of Needham, MA, followed three years later with the addition of the Foxboro store. In 2005, Babels acquired a paint store in Canton at Cobb’s Corner which they quickly renovated to include design services.
From 400 square feet in 1950, Babel's stores have grown to four locations. With more than 30 employees – Babels is pleased to continue its path of growth, success and service to the community.
