I, along with the rest of blog world, am obsessed with chalkboard paint. Now Martha Stewart has chalkboard labels, and you can use them for everything. While I am a fan of Martha, I decided it was time to make my own. It all started with this.
Since I am crazy about chalkboard paint, I have both the spray and non-spray paint on hand. For this project, the spray option was the way to go.
I thought it would be fun to make my own chalkboard labels. First, I spread out some sticky-backed mailing address labels. Name tags would work as well. It would be easy to get creative with different sizes and shapes. I was trying to keep it classic with the rectangle label.
The fun part was spraying them with the paint. I think I did four coats. I didn’t really count. I wanted a smooth dark coating. This project was so fast and easy.
Here they are ready to be used. Aren’t they cool?!?
They are working out great! Plus, since I had every thing on hand, the price was right.
