Chalkboard Paint

The suburban crafters met in March for our third Pinterest party. This month, we decided to try our hand at chalkboard paint! We all brought in different items to paint, and I have to say everyone's projects turned out really well. I won't put instructions on how to do this. It is simple: buy chalkboard paint and brushes, and paint a few coats on whatever you want!

I decided to paint the following items:

Photo Frame: Painted glass to
use as a message board.

Cardboard Gift Tags

Containers for sugar, flour etc.

I think the projects all turned out well. After 1 day (I couldn't' wait the recommended 3), I tried out the chalk:

Here are some of the items the other girls decided to paint:

Napkin Rings


Wine Glasses

And as always, our group photo:

 Next month the party is at my house! Stay tuned for which project we choose next time!


  1. I'm so sad I missed it! I really wanted to make a table runner to label food for parties.

  2. Great pictures! Thanks for posting!
