Let's Get Frosty and Make your own CHALKBOARD Paint

Lisa Frost
Did you know you can make your own custom colored chalkboard paint? Oh boy! My intern, Sara told me all about it. I did some research and learned how to do it from Martha Stewart. I liked her approach...however, you know me, I wanted to try a little something different. Latex paint and acrylic paint are basically the same thing, so I used acrylic. I made it "artsy" when I mixed each color into one another so they would all have a little bit of each other...a family of color (how nice)! And that is frosty:) Are you ready? You will need: Newspaper 1/2 cup of acrylic craft paint 1 tbsp unsanded grout (Home Depot) Paint brush Cup to mix it in And something to paint it on... ( I found these cute, bare-wood, wide picture frames) Measure out the paint and grout and mix-it-up so no lumps remain. Paint it up. Mix up only what you will need. Let it dry. Chalk it up. Have FUN! xox lisA
