I recently spotted a recipe for “homemade chalkboard” on Pinterest. I had some paint I wanted to use up from the mini-garage makeover …so I decided to paint one on the wall. Super easy…and what I love is you can use any paint you want! Any color chalkboard you wish for!!

All you need is 1 Cup of paint and 2 Tablespoons of UNSANDED grout (find this in the tile section of your hardware store)
Gently mix the grout and paint together to get out the lumps.
Tape off where you would like to paint the chalkboard…
Paint the chalkboard paint on and let it dry overnight.
The next day….rub the entire board down with the long side of a piece of chalk. Erase. Now your board is ready to use!!
