DIY Chalk Paint Recipe


4 Tablespoons Calcium Carbonate

2 Tablespoons Water

1 cup Flat Latex Paint with Primer

Stir the Calcium Carbonate with the water until smooth. Stir in the Calcium Carbonate mixture until the latex paint. Stir well. Store covered.

Note- I purchased "oops" paint from Home Depot and Lowes in colors that I like. I have only used flat or satin finish. I have been able to purchase a quart of the opps paint for only about $2.50. The regular price is frequently in excess of $25 per quart.

Please read all labels and follow all manufacturer safety recommendations when working with paints, stains, and other equipment and wear and use appropriate personal protection equipment. Viewers should attempt these projects at their own risk.
