Family Home Evening Chalk Board

FHE Chalk Board
I have wanted to create this for my family for awhile and finally got around to it.
I found an old piece of wood in our garage from other projects.
Instructions for chalk board paint:
1/2 cup acrylic paint (any color)
1 tablespoon un-sanded grout
I mixed them together with disposable plastic cup and spoon.  I used a sponge brush to paint with.  Easy clean up.  The paint can dry quickly.  I doubled the batch and painted this piece front and back with two coats and still had some left over for my daughter to paint a smaller board.
While the paint dried I used my Silhouette machine to cut out the white vinyl for the lettering.
After the paint was dry, I placed my vinyl on the painted surface. 
Next take a piece of chalk and rub it all around the painted surface and rub off the excess chalk with a paper towel.  Done!
This was so much fun and really took less time then I expected!
