I came across these wonderful stickers at my local dollar store the other day.
I was trying to think how I could incorporate them onto the planter I was painting.
I decided against the sun words and ended up going with my initial and the little flat rinestones that were on the sticker package with the letters.
I had painted the brass planter with one coat of self etching primer and two coats of white, but hated the shiny whiteness of the white, so bought another can of paint, called Heirloom White to finish this project with. I like this look alot.
And finally here is the silver tray chalkboard with two coats of chalkboard paint
I have to thank Cindy at My Romantic Home for this great idea.
I didn't even know you could buy chalkboard paint and I love this idea. I have always seen tons of these silver platters at the thrift store but thought they looked kind of tacky and old fashioned. I couldn't really see myself serving anything on them, but I think it looks awesome like this.
While I was at the paint store picking up the chalkboard paint, I noticed they also have a magnetic primer! You can paint the magnetic primer on the wall then paint over it with chalkboard (or any other colour paint). What a great idea for a kids room, a whole wall that they can stick magnet toys to and write on with chalk.
Almost makes me want to have kids, lol!
Happy crafting !!
