DIY chalkboard

Decorate your dorm or leave notes for your roommate with this customizable DIY color chalkboard.




  1. Measure 1/2 acrylic paint and 1 tablespoon unsanded grout.
  2. Add the grout to the paint and stir until the mixture is smooth and no lumps remain. Use this to paint your board.
  3. Allow your chalkboard to dry before slating it. Slate your board by lightly running chalk over the surface and then lightly rubbing it off.
  4. Your chalkboard is now complete and ready to use!
