How To: Make Your Own Chalkboard Paint

Pin it button big

Chalkboard paint is easily purchased at any hardware store. But it's only available in black or green. This recipe allows you to create the paint in any color you please:

3 teaspoons acrylic paint (color of choice)
1 1/2 teaspoons glazing medium (water-based)
1/2 teaspoon powder tile grout

Mix all ingredients together, blending very well. Make only as much as you need, as it does not store well...
