Patterned Chalkboards


I'm super excited to share a fun idea with you.  
I read about this product


 which turns almost any surface into a chalkboard.
It is sooo cool, my brain is kind of on overload 
with the possibilities.


All you do is paint one coat vertically; let it dry for 1 hour.
Then paint a second coat horizontally, and let it dry 1 hour.
Seriously - That's It!


One of my favorite applications, so far, has been to turn a
piece of scrapbook paper into a patterned chalkboard.
After gluing the scrapbook paper to a piece of cardboard to 
add substance, I simply painted it with 2 coats of the
chalkboard coating - and my project was finished.



It is so cute, and I think it would make a wonderful gift.

Here are a couple of other scrapbook paper ideas to get
your brain storming going:
 






I think the entire cost for my chalkboard
is about $1.50, including the garage sale frame.
 
Is this something you would try?  
Wouldn't kids love making this?

Thanks for stopping by the tub!
