Recently, I became acquainted with chalkboard spray paint and let me just tell you: it. is. awesome! I’ve pretty much just been wandering around our apartment looking for things to chalkboardify… nothing is safe! Two light coats and you can create a chalkboard on just about any surface/material you fancy. And I’ll clue you in on a little secret – Lowe’s has the best price ;)
Let’s break this project down and let the pictures do the talking:
Please excuse my thigh. Conditioning the surface is the most important step of chalkboardification. You just need to rub the side of a piece of chalk over the entire surface and wipe clean. This prevents whatever you write first from becoming permanent!
For attaching the stick, I went with my trusty glue gun for instant gratification, but tacky glue would work just fine.
Is it ironic that I don’t have any herbs right now? I have big plans of starting a container herb garden this summer… but for now, I just scribbled a little greeting on one marker and stuck it in a happy little pot on our porch J It makes me smile every time I come home. I love how this project turned out and can’t wait to get some more plants!
