1 cup paint
2 tbsp non-sanded tile grout
I decided to give it a go and
finally have my very own giant chalkboard let the kids have a cool place to doodle and express themselves
|Add the grout to the paint and stir..stir.. stir.. and stir some more. I started with 2 cups of paint and ran out. In total I used 3 cups of paint for a small wall.|
|it looks pretty gross when on the wall, almost like spit balls mixed in with pancake batter. I used my finger to rub out each of those little balls (only because I didn't want to sand later)|
This project was very easy and I was super excited to have a chalkboard wall. I must confess that after a few days we are beginning to rethink this wall. The board is messy! not just to look at but chalk dust is all over the place. Ive seen posts where people have done a board in their child's room and I cant fathom the mess and stains it would create in a carpeted room. We will have fun with the wall a bit longer while we decide if its a keeper. We can always paint over it!
