Make Your Own Chalkboard Paint

I found this awesome recipe over at  and thought I should share it with all you lovely people!!

USING A SPONGE BRUSH, apply 3 OR MORE coats on your painting surface. Sand with 400 (or more) grit sandpaper between coats, however, if you're careful and use a sponge brush, sanding might not be necessary. 

Recipe of Chalkboard Paint:
  • 3 teaspoons acrylic paint (color of choice), PLAIN OLD ACRYLIC CRAFT PAINT WORKS FINE
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons glazing medium (water based)
  • 1/2 teaspoon powder UNSANDED tile grout

  1. This is so great, I've been wanting to try out chalkboard paint, but didn't want to commit to buying a whole thing of it from the store. I have the perfect project to try this out on. Thanks!!


I love reading your comments and appreciate each and every one!
