Didn't work. But then I realized, that this was a really really tight fit. Which was a complete good thing.
As I said before, the best thing about this chalkboard is that you can make it in any size and color. So...of course, that's exactly what I did :)
Anyway. I wanted this chalkboard to be white...like, desperately wanted it. So I had to do it. I went to Lowes, went to the tile area. Found some tile grout. And lo' and behold...whatta ya know. Unsanded tile grout was staring right back at me :) And in white! Which was perfect, cuz obviously, I didn't want crazy brown grout to ruin my white chalkboard.
Okay. So to make this, use:
1 Tablespoon for unsanded tile grout
1/2 cup of acrylic craft paint (make sure its flat. I thought they were all flat, but then I came across a gloss one...weird :) )
Mix it up real good. And apply! Its that easy :)
Well, I learned my lesson and put him in his room (aka our bedroom) until I was completely done :)
The cost of either of these was pretty much nothing since I had mostly everything on hand. Well, I guess the tile grout was $4. But I only used maybe 3 tablespoons of it. So it was like essentially mere cents :)
Thank you Pottery Barn for your inspiration...again!
