Chalkboard Paint

Last night, I took on the adventure of painting with chalkboard paint. We got some old lockers from my parents, I was so excited to get this project started that I forgot to take before pictures but I did find this one that shows what the original lockers looked like.
I mixed up my own chalkboard paint and it is easy to do. 1 cup paint (any color) and 2 tablespoons of non-sanded white grout.
Mix together really well and you are ready to go. I used a sponge brush to apply.
It took two coats but I am very pleased with the results.
Here is a close up view, I wrote and erased on locker number 7, so it looks a little more broken in.

Big thanks to my parents for the lockers...we love them!
