Chalkboard Paint Recipe, Any Color!

FYI, if you want chalkboard paint in colors other than store-bought formulas that come in traditional green and black. You can follow this recipe to mix your own batch in any shade. Cleverly applied chalkboard paint means new places to track appointments, keep lists, and leave messages. Or simply use the surface to draw or doodle, which will appeal to kids and the kid in everyone.

The recipe is:

1 Cup Flat Latex Paint ~ Any Color
2 Tablespoons Unsanded grout powder (used for tiling)
Mix well and paint at least two coats with each coat allowed to dry. Easy!


Just thought you might want to know!

  6. Thanks for the "recipe". I just made a few chalkboards too. I just wish they were magnetic also. Like the chalkboards in the classrooms. I tried spraying magnetic spray first and then chalkboard paint over it as a 'top coat'...didn't work :( Oh well!
