DIY Chalk Board Paint

Chalkboard Paint is expensive. It seems to be quite the rage right now. Seems like every time I look in a magazine or on a website I'm seeing something about chalkboard paint. Even my 19 year old wanted one of her walls painted with chalk board paint. (Go figure!)

Well here's a super duper easy recipe that only has two ingredients.
Here's what you will need:
  • Paint (Any color )
  • Non-Sanded Tile Grout
Directions: Mix 1 cup of paint with 2 Tablespoons of grout. Stir really well to get all the lumps and bumps out.

Have fun and enjoy!!

A rainy day. Three kids in a park. A dinosaur spring rider. A bag of chalk. The kids begin to draw. . . and then . . . magic! The children draw the sun, butterflies, and a dinosaur that amazingly come to life. Children will never feel the same about the playground after they experience this astounding wordless picture book and the power of the imagination. Bill Thomson embraced traditional painting techniques and meticulously painted each illustration by hand, using acrylic paint and colored pencils. Available on Amazon

The Magic Chalk of Rita Elementary School An entertaining tale, in both Marshallese and English, of what happens to two students who happen upon a piece of magic chalk while cleaning up after school one day.
