Making your own chalkboard paint is quite simple. You just need two ingredients and a surface that you want to paint. I primarily use my chalkboards for photography shoots, but I have made some chalkboards for things in my rooms. It's quite handy being able to make your own. WHAT YOU'LL NEED Unsanded Grout Paint - any color you want

HOW TO MAKE IT 1.  Depending on how much paint you need, the amount can vary. I used 1/2 cup of paint and it was way too much for my project. I could have gotten by with using 3/4 cups. 2. 2 tablespoons grout. I also think that this is something you can vary with because depending on how much paint you want to use, you won't want to have too much grout and not enough paint. 3. Mix the grout and paint together until there are no lumps. 4. Paint your surface. Then put your surface in a frame, or dress it up however you would like!
