Make Your Own "Safer" Chalkboard Paint

Our church is making a special room for kids with special needs and somebody suggested using chalkboard paint. Sounds fun but I had concerns about what's actually in chalkboard paint and I hadn't seen any that were low/no VOC. Then I came across this great blog with directions to make your own chalkboard paint. It's simple, safer, and you can make it in any color - you aren't limited to the traditional black or green chalkboard colors. Just choose your favorite zero-VOC paint (we like Olympic Premium Zero-VOC paint) and for every cup of paint add 2 tablespoons of tile grout. Check out some of their great ideas here.
