Chalkboard Vases

I've been wanting to try chalkboard paint for a while now and I finally got the chance to.  A little over a week ago, it warmed up a little, so I could do a little painting in the garage.  I chose to use the chalkboard spray paint, it seemed like an easier option for my first chalkboard project.  You can use the paint on almost any surface.  It worked on recycled wine and champagne bottles.  You need a couple coats of paint and you need to let it dry for 24 hours before you can use chalk on the surface.

They are kind of cool and would be fun for a party.  However, it is kind of hard to draw/write on a round object.  I think the next time I use chalkboard paint it will be on a flat service.

Now, it just needs to warm up so I can work on some other projects.  It was -20 this morning!  (Yes, thats a negative before the 20)  Brrrr!  You can't paint when its cold.  Come on Mother Nature, I'm getting a little impatient.  I'm ready for some warm weather!

Have a great weekend!
