I have had several ideas for using Chalkboard Paint, but due to the cost I have not tried any of them. So, if it were affordable, how would you use Chalkboard Paint?
Here are a few ideas:

So, I found online that you can make your own Chalkboard Paint!!
I haven’t tried it yet... but I want to try it soon!
Homemade Chalkboard Paint
1 Cup of latex house paint or acrylic craft paint
1 Tbsp. of non-sanded tile grout
Mix paint and grout together making sure all lumps are out. Use a roller (a roller will give you a smoother finish) or brush paint on wall or object where you want a chalkboard. Paint 2 coats for best coverage. After it’s dry use a fine sandpaper and lightly sand to make smooth.
Please note that you may need to do other prep work, like priming, depending on the object you are painting.
By the way, look in the marked down section at your local hardware store for broken open non-sanded tile grout packages. If will be cheaper than buying a new package.
Don’t forget, those acrylic craft paints come in thousands of colors so you could make some really cool and colorful chalkboards!!
