I love chalkboard paint projects, they look so pretty and versatile! I think this is a must if you have kids at home and the best part is that it is very easy to make and doesn't use weird ingredients.
Step 1: What You'll Need
1/2 cup of black paint
1 1/2 tablespoons of unsanded grout
1 tablespoon of water
1 can for mixing and keeping the paint
1 disposable spoon or stick
Step 2: Black Paint
Pour 1/2 cup of black paint in the can. I made this amount of paint because I just had small projects but if you're going to paint something bigger you can just multiply the ingredients.
Step 3: Unsanded Grout
Put 1 1/2 tablespoons of the unsanded grout in the paint. Try to feel it first with your fingers to avoid big rocks. If it's not too fine you can use a strainer to make it thinner.
Step 4: Water
Add the water. It doesn't have to be a specific temperature of water, just lukewarm.
Step 5: Mix
Use the spoon or stick to stir it and mix everything to get a smooth texture.
Step 6: Store
Put the lid on your can or use right away. As it is thicker than a normal paint I recommend to store it for one month maximum for a better result.
Now let your creativity flow and use this in all the projects that come to your mind.
Happy crafty time!
