Make Custom Color Chalkboard Paint

From Martha Stewart Living

A wall calendar for your home or office, mural, message center.....your imagination is the limit.  A cool idea on utilizing your paint in a truly useful way.

How to:

1.  Pour 1 cup of paint into a container.  Add 2 tablespoons of unsanded tile grout.  Mix with a paint stirrer, carefully breaking up clumps.

2.  Apply paint with a roller or a sponge paintbrush to a primed or painted surface.  Work in small sections, going over the same spot several times to ensure full, even coverage.  Let dry.

3.  Smooth area with 150-grit sandpaper, and wipe off dust.

4.  To condition: Rub the side of a piece of chalk over entire surface.  Wipe away residue with a barely damp sponge.
