Mix 1/2 cup of baking soda with 1 cup of latex paint. I used a sample size of pant from Home Depot for my desired color but if you have extra paint left over from painting a room or project you can use that!
The last ingredient is 3 tbs of cold water.
Mix your ingredient until they create a thin, non-grainy texture. This takes a bit of time to dissolve all the baking soda.
And that's all it takes! This one cup of paint was more than enough to paint my end table and coffee table. After I was done I stored it in a tightly sealed mason jar. Let me know what you'll be painting with this chalk paint hack!
Here is the finished product!
