Chalk board paint is so awesome, but also so expensive. Especially when you have to paint several coats to create the optimal chalk board surface. When I found out the recipe for home-made chalk paint to do it yourself, from Printerest, from the Queen of DIY, the one, the only, Martha Stewart, I was excited. But also worried that it would be some huge deal to make with 500 million ingredients half of which I’d never heard of. But alas, I was wrong! Only 2 very simple ingredients!
Paint and Non-Sanded Tile Grout.
Simple. AWESOME! I’m sorry I doubted you Martha…
I’ve been wanting to do a couple projects and jumped at my chance. I had some Oops! paint I picked up at a local hardware store and was off to test Miss Martha’s theory ~ and it worked! Like magic! Any color paint could now magically turn into chalk paint.
IT. WAS. AWESOME.
Give it a try and you will be so pleased with this trick!
