Chalkboard Painting Projects

I decided to go for it and try painting a plate with chalkboard paint. Overall I think it came out pretty cute and the cost was very little.  I've had the plate for years (it was a handy down from my mother...thanks Mom!)  I've always loved it but hardly ever used it,now I can enjoy it daily!  I did spend around 5 bucks for the paint which I could do a ton of other projects with and I had the plate holder laying around for sometime now.  I painted two coats of paint on the plate.  I think spray paint would give it a smoother look but I was scared to go that route. Maybe for a bigger project.  Next I did my utensil holder (that I never really use for utensils)...

I think it's super cute now.   I look forward to trying some other projects.........but I need to work up my courage first.  If you have any tips, please share.

Have a great day!

Very very cute!! You've inspired me to go buy some of that paint and start painting random objects in my home!

Blessings to you!
