I found this 'too good to be true' tutorial at My Nerdy Nook.
How to make your own chalkboard paint!!
What the What?
I HAD to try it.
So I headed to Lowes to look for the unsanded grout
(just a hint..it was in the way back of my store and ~$5).
I picked up a few bottles of acrylic paint from Joanns and got to mixing.
While at Joann's, I also picked up a few unfinished wooden hearts.
I added my bright red chalkboard paint,
And here's the finished product, hanging on our mantle
You can see the endless possibilities with this right??
Almost any color on virtually any surface?!?
I have my eye on more things in the house that would be perfect 'chalked' :)
I will share my 'simple heart garland' tomorrow.
It only takes a few supplies and I bet you have most of them right now!
