This and That (on a can).

I bought these paint cans at Lowes for $2.50 each

Then I taped off little rectangles. I didn't measure or anything, I wanted them to not be so perfect. Then I brushed on chalkboard paint. It took 3 coats over about 12 hours. I would just walk by them every 3-4 hours and brush on another coat. These will be in my scrapbooking corner I am putting together this summer! I will fill them with pens, buttons, whatever I need storage for! They were fun to make!


  1. i love this idea julie! ya got me thinking of all the cool things i can chalkboard paint!!!

  2. I like this idea, too. I think I'll make a few for my friend who is a big crafter! Thanks, Julie!
