Make Your Own Chalkboard Paint

We love chalkboard paint. You can do the obvious like paint walls to the less obvious and paint wine glasses with it. Unfortunately the paint can be expensive and the colors available are pretty limited. Well, after you watch this video you won’t have to worry about any of that. What we love most about this DIY project is you can choose any color you like. Blue, red, pink or even orange, you can now make a chalkboard paint in any shade of color you like.
