Chalkboard paint is a great way to turn any wall or surface into a usable writing space, whether it's a storage container or the side of your desk. This recipe for DIY chalkboard paint lets you make it in any colour you like, so you're not stuck with an all-black wall just because you wanted a space for the shopping list or note to the family.
Over at A Beautiful Mess, writers Emma and Elsie share their simple recipe for chalkboard paint, which incorporates acrylic paint in any colour you might want. This way you can blend in your chalkboard writing space to whatever wall you're painting, or make a colourful chalkboard pattern instead of a straight black box on the wall.
The process doesn't take much time to set up at all, and it's easily scaled if you want more or less chalkboard paint. For the start-to-finish walk-through including lots of photos and all the tools you'll need, hit the link below.
