Lately, chalk board paint has been all the rage for me. I love it. I was bummed that it only came in a few colors (boring green and black). That was my disappointment until I read a post from Apartment Therapy and my heart leaped. Finally chalk board paint in any color under the sun. My crafty mind started swirling with great ideas. I had to sit down it was just that overwhelming.
To the paint shelf I go! In our family we have joke that my husband hoards paint cans. He doesn’t really hoard them but we painted our house all in one big “swoop” and so we have a bunch of cans with leftover paint. It drives me crazy. Yes, I am one of those crafters that once you are done with a project you clean up all the supplies and you are done with it. I know I am rare! LOL
So back to the paint cans.
Today was their day to make something beautiful (again) and then hit the road! To say I was “gleeful” would be an understatement. First project to re-purpose an UGLY old terra cotta flower-pot! This thing was so not cute. So I applied a fresh cute of chalk board paint to the entire pot and planted some succulents. Much like this project.
I really liked it! I decided to have a little fun with this gift and ding-dong ditch my sisters house! So me and my hubby snuck over to her house all stealthy like and we left this “gift” and ding-dong ditched her. The whole ride home we were singing “ha ha we ding-dong ditched her!”. Well the joke was on us she wasn’t even home. HA!
