Did someone say chalk?

I finally gave in to the urge to buy some chalkboard paint. Everyone has been talking about painting with chalkboard paint and I just had to see for myself.
How much fun is this??
First I had to make a run to the thrift store... somehow painting other peoples old junk is more fun than painting my own old junk. A silver tray, and look at this cute pizza pan~ Baker's Secret.

It is as easy as 1-2-3. It did take several coats to get the coverage I wanted.
And the end result is so cute. The ideas are endless. I really think Bill could use a wall like this in his office. Until then, I will be happy with my new chalkboard in the kitchen.
I'm linking up to Kimba's 'do it yourself day'~
Y'all enjoy!

I love chalk board paint. I have made a few of these platters to give as holiday gifts, each time I make a new one I think I love it better than the last. Aren't these just the greatest things? I also saw the canisters and they are fabulous.

I have a can of chalkboard paint that we used to make a board for our VBS 's that we had this summer. I still have most of the can left and STILL haven't used it for anything else!! What is wrong with me!!
