Day 1: chalkboard plates

Idea from The Rubber Punkin

Anyone who knows me will say that I LOVE (imagine the word love being sung to you in a loud falsetto opera voice) a good deal. Seriously, it gives me a high to know I saved a penny. I get all giddy and wiggly inside. Well same thing goes with crafting now. If I can find something to use around the house for my crafting projects and not have to spend a cent, you will find one happy girl and someone who likes to repeat herself. I think Timmy my hub heard me mention at least 10 times that I didn’t spend one penny on this first craft

All you need is Chalkboard paint, primer, paint brush, a plate, and a wall plate holder thingy.

The chalkboard paint I had left over from a different project, the primer from when we painted the house, The plate I have had since our reception almost 8 years ago (See Timmy, I knew I would need them some day!). The wall plate holder thingy (there’s got to be an official name for those) I got with a gift card from a store where everything was marked 50% off. Starting to feel those giddy and wiggly feelings again :)!



  1. cool!! I am NOT a crafty person, but I enjoy seeing others' talents :) Way to go!

  2. I'm excited for your new adventure! I love creating things because it gives me such a feeling of accomplishment, and I miss it when I'm not creating. Lately I've been working on beaded square knot hemp bracelets! Good luck! I will put you on my list of favorites.

  3. What a cute idea! I love that the paint has scalloped edges.

    I am hosting a giveaway and would love it if you checked it out!
