Today's Pin: Chalkboard Painting

The Pin's Source: Just Short of Crazy

Cost:
  • $3.99 for a small bottle of chalkboard paint
  • Dollar Store plate and wine glasses

Hours: 1 hour

Notable Comments: I tried to find a large platter so I could make a chalkboard cheese platter like this one but never found a cheap enough one so I settled for a large plate I found at the dollar store. And I had a chipped wine glass that I used to dip the stem.

The chalkboard paint was easy to use. I didn't want brush strokes to show so the paint ended up going on kinda thick. The only hesitation I have is the chalkboard paint safe for food? I see no warning signs on the bottle???

All in all, the project was easy and I got the results I was looking for.
