Turn anything into a chalkboard

Categories: ,



If you thought chalkboards were just for schoolrooms, think again. With a bit of chalkboard paint and a little imagination, you can turn just about any surface into a chalkboard!





























Make your own chalkboard paint (in any color you choose):

Start with flat-finish latex paint in any shade. For small areas, mix 1 cup at a time.

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.

So that's what I can do with my old globe!!!

I have chalkboard wine glasses (that I bought, but whatever) and I have to say that they're totally fun.

Thanks for posting the recipe. I'm absolutely going to use it.


Let me know how the globe turns out -- the picture looks so cool!
