Craft Monday: Chalkboard Pot

I discovered something recently that I am sure most already knew about.

Chalkboard. Paint.

You can really turn anything into a chalkboard. It is amazing. Really, its all about the little things in life.

So I went to Lowe's and picked up a quart. Then went home to see what I could paint.

And I found this.

Kinda old. Kinda boring.

I had been touching up our newly remodeled den and decided that the top portion of the pot should be that same color.

I taped off the top portion of the pot once the paint dried, and went to town painting the bottom portion!

After a few minor touch ups, I began writing on it.

I forgot how much I love playing with chalk! After several words, we settled on "Smile". Since Hubs has to look at it everyday, he got a say in what I wrote. I can only imagine what he will change it to on a daily basis.

For now, the pot and plant live on our kitchen window sill.

I wonder what else I will find in our house that I can paint.....

I am sharing this Chalkboard Pot on ALL of these Link Parties!

so cute. I LOVE chalkboard paint!! I have made some cute things with plates and the paint. Will have to make some more soon (Christmas presents) so I will post them when I do. Lately I have been trying to work with magnetic paint. ummm, not good results yet.

I should try that. I actually bought the chalkboard paint awhile ago, and still haven't used it. I just have no room to paint (although i'm a craft shopping addict) I go to walmart and somehow I turn into this color frenzy and want to buy everything. color is very intriguing. Thats why I have so much paint, fabric, and yarn =).
Good idea, maybe I'll make this, and then repost back to ya.
Would love a follow back
