i love this chalkboard situation. in fact, i am going to make one today! i gots me an easy recipe to MAKE chalkboard paint. i have to dig it up to post it, but it’s basically the easiest thing you could possible image. i am thinking about painting my entryway/mudroom this week. so: per 1 cup of ANY paint you wish, add 2 Tbsp. of non sanded grout.
