I was shopping at Michael's last week and was in the paint aisle picking up some acrylic paint. At the end of the aisle, a lady was looking into the "cage" of spray paint, and for some reason it reminded me of a project I was hoping to do. I asked the guy helping her if they made chalkboard paint in a spray can. I knew it came in a can, but I wanted something quicker and easier. And as luck would have it, they do! He showed me where it was at, and for $7.50 I picked up a can of Krylon chalkboard paint.
I popped the glass out of all the frames and laid them out on some paper outside.
After letting everything dry, I put the glass back into the frame and put the back on. After waiting 24 hours to let the chalkboard paint set, they were ready to use. It said to rub chalk all over the board to "activate" it and then it was good to go!
I'm planning on having one of these for in the photobooth we're having and then I'm not totally sure on the other two. I was thinking of maybe putting one on the guestbook sign in table, and the other on the gift table with a little message on each.
I probably only used about 1/4 of the can on these four boards, so I'll have to think of some more projects to use up the rest! So each board only cost about $4. Not too bad!
