I have a couple projects I am working on right now for my 5 year old bedroom re-do.  I love to make surfaces that she can doodle on.  All you need is some non-sanded powdered tile grout or powdered wall plaster, and your paint.  That is it. A good ratio to use is 1 part grout to 8 parts paint. Mix well and paint as you normally would. I recommend painting 2 coats for even coverage.

Once dry, Get your chalkboard ready for drawing by rubbing the board with chalk. Wipe it off with a dry towel in circular strokes. After that you are good to go!

The sky is  the limit with this simple recipe.  Paint furniture, walls, and more without spending a fortune!
