So my best friend got married elopement style but more like private wedding style in FL and she's having a big reception in a couple of weeks. She needed a sign for her favors, which will be 'moonpies' with a cute little label that looks like chalk on a chalkboard. All the rage right now, I know.
So naturally she asked her painting major best bud to help out.
I used a Pinterest recipe to make my own chalkboard paint. I don't know how it would hold up with actual chalk, but the texture is amazing! All you need is paint in whatever color you want and Dry Non Sanded Grout. The lady who's blog I looked at measured all her ingredients...but we all know I don't measure stuff...so I just gently dumped some into my paint and stirred until it looked like the right consistency.
The lettering might be a little wanky..but in person it's really cute. I started with the main sign...and then decided I needed to make more!
So now they will have a full table of cute little signs and information for their guests about the weddin'.
And naturally, when I start something I like and have the supplies out, I usually look around my house and try to figure out what I can abduct to be my craft slave .....
First it was the dog food container...which now looks fancy and cute.
And then I saw a piece of really nice thick cardboard laying around....so I painted it and freehanded this welcome sign. Poked two holes with an awl, tied some ribbon and voila...our front door looks really nice!
Also, multi-seasonal too!
Life is better with paint. And non sanded grout.
