Get 1 cup of flat paint...any color that you want. Add 2 tablespoons of unsanded grout. Mix well and break up the clumps. Paint it on the wall in thick even coats. Let it dry and then sand it with 150-grit sandpaper. And then you just wipe it with chalk like you do the normal stuff. How awesome is that?!?! I can assure you that you will see this in my girl room when its done. This is such a great idea! And we have most of a gallon of delicious chocolate brown paint that we used for tiny half bath. Guys, I can't wait to show you this basement. Its phenomenal. Really.
