Two Easy DIY Projects With Chalkboard Spray Paint!

Projects with chalkboard paint are everywhere these days, and I had to do a couple of projects.  I have seen many tutorials online for using chalkboard paint, and was very excited to see chalkboard spray paint at our local home improvement store.  Much easier to use!

I found a few silver trays at a thrift store for $1-2 each, and taped off the decorative edges with painter’s tape before painting.  I painted them with two coats of the chalkboard spray paint, then hung them on the wall with plate hangers.  Super easy, and we love the new message center in our entry room!

I have a problem when canning time comes around with labeling my canning jars.  Last year I used my label maker, but those labels are difficult to remove.  I have so many empty jars that say “marinara sauce”!  I saw some chalkboard labels for sale at a craft store, and decided to try to make some myself. 🙂  I used the chalkboard spray paint to paint a sheet of contact paper.  Then I used an oval template I made to cut out labels.  So far, they are helping us keep organized in the bathroom!  I can’t wait to try them out when I start canning food this year.
