Hi! Just updating this post today! Last week got the best of me through a lot of house projects that I needed to do. I was determined to post pics & then never got to talk about them 🙂 Anyway, glad things are getting back to “normal” & I can tell you all about my chalkboard flower pots! This was so much fun!
I first gathered some terracotta pots I had on hand. These were for Mother’s Day & I had to be a little “frugal” this year. I had the sprays, pots & chalk on hand & had some fun in Walmart’s garden department. I was surprised to see new flowers that I haven’t seen before & I even have a new favorite succulent that I will be blogging about later 🙂
I used Jo-Ann’s black spray paint as a base. I have learned that using a primer with chalk board paint is very important! I used Krylon’s chalkboard paint for the fun effect! This was really easy to use & I sprayed 3 light layers with about 15 minutes to set in between.
This next step is also VERY important! You have to “season” the chalkboard with a layer of chalk smudged all over it. Then I wiped it off with a damp cloth. This helps to seal the paint. & helps to keep the surface smooth.
Then have fun with your phrase or artwork of your liking 🙂 I’m not an artist so I scribbled a message from Lizzie & made a few colorful doodles.
Have fun with this project & I hope everyone is having a great Spring!
