. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Chalkboard vase

September 23, 2013

Chalkboard vase


If you thought these projects that I shared last week were easy, this was can beat it as it took less than five minutes.   I found this old vase at Goodwill for less than $3.  


I bought some chalkboard spray paint at Hobby Lobby for $4.  I sprayed on one good coat and let it dry for a few hours.  Then wrote on it with chalk and filled it will fall leaves.  


And that's it!  I love how it looks on our fireplace mantle and it cost less than $7.  Plus I'm excited to use it for other holidays as I can wipe it off and write something else!  Sorry for the poor quality phone picture. Someday I'll learn how to take good pictures with a real camera. 


Happy happy Fall!
