Enter Michaels, the land of crafts. I knew I had to use chalkboard paint for something so I made my way to Michaels in search of...well...something. The something I walked away with was a wooden plaque.
Having just gotten married and moved in together, I decided I could create something that John and I used to write notes and hold our keys (I was forever finding John's keys everywhere).
In order to make it, I bought the spray paint version of Rust-oleum Chalkboard (mainly because it was cheaper and I didn't need too much) and some primer. After spraying 3 coats of chalkboard paint and waiting 24 hours I had John screw in some brass hooks.
It now hangs near our front door to hold keys, dog leashes, and purses. The main purpose it serves, however, is to allow us to write haiku notes to one another. I only wish I could remember some of the funniest.
Recently it seems chalkboard paint has taken over the painting community. While glancing through photos and brainstorming ways to utilize my leftover paint, I find myself drawn to so many options.
How fun would it be to paint a bunch of pots such as this....but in these fun chalkboard colors?!
Really, the sky's the limit! What would you do with chalkboard paint?
