Athenian Gothic + Custom Color Chalkboard Paint

Today I learned to use my camera remote! Coley came over to help me paint an accent wall in my kitchen, and we had fun playing with the remote.

The next coat of paint will be the same color, but treated to be a chalkboard wall! The formula is from Martha Stewart: start with any color flat finish latex paint. For each cup, mix in 2 tablespoons of unsanded tile grout. Be sure to mix well and break up the clumps!

Based on how much paint it took to do the first coat, I estimated I would need five cups of paint. I filled my mixing bucket (old washed out ice cream bucket) with 5 cups of water, and marked that level. When I'm ready to mix the paint, I can pour it right into the bucket without having to sacrifice a measuring cup.

I'll post the after photos when (or if?) we finish it on New Years Day!
