CHALK IT UP TO THE PAINT


Chalkboard paint. $10




A notice board with ugly painted chefs that I always hated but never changed for some reason.
$0


Lots of my jars $0

An old sheet of garage sale stickers to use as a stencil
$0



Chalk $1.00



A fun, easy, cheap project...

PRICELESS!


OK- so it wasn't priceless it cost me about $11 but I have gobs of paint left over and an insatiable desire to make everything a chalkboard.
( I may need some help. )

It is actually a lot of fun to transform something so easily and make things more useful. I have more projects that involve the chalkboard paint but I'll try to not go overboard.

**TRY**

being the key word.

Have a great weekend y'all!

I painted nearly an entire wall in my boys room a chalk board! They love it! I painted molding and trimmed it out and it looks great!

Love it! I am painting my pantry door with chalkboard paint! I painted it with magnetic paint first (not so magnetic) now the chalkboard!

Love the jars! (I'm a little behind on reading past blog posts so here I am today trying to catch up!)

I love chalkboard paint! I picked up the spray paint kind and constantly find items that would be more useful if I could cover them in chalk!
