I {love} chalkboard paint!

Good evening! I'm not even gonna address the fact that I haven't blogged in a while--sometimes life just happens that way & I know yall understand. On to some new craftiness!

Friday night I went to Hobby Lobby & bought my very first can of spray paint. Chalkboard paint to be more exact. I've heard of people using chalkboard paint & loving it, but I've never used any kind of spray paint & honestly I was a little nervous about my spraying ability.

Turns out all you've gotta do is spray! Ha ha, I know it seems obvious, but I just figured there was somehow I could really screw this up. I sprayed a couple of things Friday night & again Saturday morning. Saturday evening I finished up my flower chalkboard.
On the back I mod podged some red gingham paper & then ran red ribbon through the holes. Here's the front of the finished product.

Super cute huh!? It was really easy & maybe I've gotten over my fear of spray paint. I'm thinking this can of paint is not gonna last me long because I'm ready to chalkboard paint anything I can get my hands on! The only thing stopping me is the prospect of getting some of the new dry erase board paint from the hardware store...
