DIY Custom-Hued Chalk Paint For Decorating Fun – Drummond House Plans Blog

We are seeing more and more use of chalk paint used in decor to create space for notes or a blank canvas for young (and young-at-heart) artists.

We have yet to test this DIY project but it comes from Better Homes and Gardens, so we are confident that success is just a brush-stroke away.

Better Homes & Gardens Recipe for Custom-Hued Chalk Paint

While you can find chalkboard paint at almost any crafts or art store or home center, if you’re longing for a hue that’s not available on store shelves, concoct your own. To create your own custom color of chalk-ready paint, simply combine 1 cup latex paint in your desired shade with 2 tablespoons of unsanded tile grout. Use a paint stirrer to mix. During application, gently sand the dry layers of paint between coats with 150-grit sandpaper. Apply several coats for best color.
