I happen to have a theme for this week, and it’s dun dun dun… chalkboard paint! I started out using it for speech bubbles for our engagement photos. After that, I made some boards into regular old chalk boards, also for use at the wedding! Those are all fine and dandy, but I wanted to see what else I could do with this versatile paint! So I grabbed a few jars that I’ve been collecting and a few other cans of paint and went to work!
Wax paper and painter’s tape helped me seal off the areas I didn’t want getting paint on them. I did each jar a little bit differently! One jar got a complete coat on the outside (after a base coat of regular spray paint), another got an interior coat of white and a fabric cap. These two others are my favorites!
A little squat salsa jar got a coat of light brown paint inside, but the cap got a few coats of the chalkboard paint! Since I couldn’t get all the adhesive off from the original sticker, I covered it with some cute cute lunch-themed fabric and there you are: lunch money jar!
The other I added a little chalkboard ‘label’ to! First I blocked out a base for the label and painted with the same beige as the lunch money jar. Then I blocked out a slightly smaller space for the chalkboard paint using painter’s tape. A few coats later, and there we are!
The adventures will continue Friday with more chalkboard paint stories… Stay tuned!
