I never knew chalkboard paint existed, let alone have the creativeness to think of this great idea. So thank you so much, WE ARE THAT FAMILY! I hope you don't mind, I took this idea from you and I so look forward to more of your really great Arts and Crafts creations. BTW, your plates came out so much better than mine!
I am hanging these above my kitchen window as the colors match perfectly. I have not hung them yet, as I am waiting on the BF to assist me (It's the whole heights thing, I'm not a big fan of heights.)
If you are creatively challenged like me and have no clue what stuff like this costs, here is what I paid for the items needed to create the above masterpieces:
Walmart Chalk - $.96 for 12 sticks at Walmart
Paint colors - $1.97 per color at Walmart (This is Acrylic paint)
Paint Brushes - $.96 for a pack of 12 at Walmart
Chalkboard Paint - $3.99 at Michaels (This is going to last forever!!)
Wooden circles - $1.12 each
Hooks to hand the boards - $1.48 - 6 hangers at Walmart
So I had so much fun making these chalkboards that I went on a DIY frenzy and created all of this great stuff:
I bought these three cute signs at Michaels for $1.00 each about a year ago and until now had absolutely no use for them, because the colors just didn't match anything in my house. So I busted out the paint I had purchased and painted them to match the colors of my kitchen and hung them up over my Keurig Coffee Maker.
So I purchased these two, HOPE and FAITH, signs at Michaels when I was picking up the chalkboard paint. They were on clearance for only $.89 cents. I painted them using the Acrylic paint I had purchased to make the chalkboards so that they matched the kitchen and placed them on top of my kitchen cabinets. They look so cute!!
These projects are currently in the making and not yet completed. Oh the joys of Magnetic Spray paint ($5.00 on clearance at Walmart). I do not recommend Magnetic Spray paint! If there is a way to get this paint in a jar, I think that would be best. It took so many coats just to make these magnetic. The heart, is not magnetic. So in order these will soon become:
The BF wants me to write on it:
