DIY Chalk Paint

I decided that I really wanted to change the look of this table.  Black really doesn’t go well in our apartment and this table is getting really old.  I wanted to give it an antique/distressed look so after some research I found out that I needed chalk paint.  But when I went to the store to buy it I found out that it was really expensive!  So I decided to make chalk paint by myself by mixing flat paint with with un-sanded grout. After that I just sanded the edges and put a finishing wax on it.  It only took about an hour for the whole project!


Chalk paint:

1 cup flat pain: 1 tbsp Un-sanded Grout
