Isn’t it amazing? The more things change, the more they stay the same. Old-school chalkboards are all the rage. Ironically enough, they’ve been absent from classrooms for years, but are making a comeback thanks to Pinterest. When’s the last time you attended a party that didn’t have something decorated in chalk? I can’t remember.
I have a confession to make. I’m obsessed with chalkboard paint…. chalkboard spray paint to be exact. Thanks to Rust-Oleum, I have the ability to make anything into a chalkboard. I told my hubby today that I’m going to make everything in our house into a chalkboard. He laughs. I’m serious. Today I made Crystal Light containers into chalkboard surfaced storage containers. Didn’t see that coming, did you?
What You’ll Need:
– Plastic storage containers (Crystal Light)
– Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Spray Paint
Prep your plastic containers. Clean off sticky goop and wash as needed. Gently sand the outside of your bottles. Line them up!
Begin adding really light layers of the chalkboard paint to your storage containers. PSA: If you spray too closely or use thick layers, the paint will bubble up and smudge. Not that I’m talking from experience or anything. 🙂
Allow the first coat to dry and apply a second layer of chalkboard spray paint.
After the storage containers are completely dry, label as needed. Obviously I’m not a teacher. Writing in chalk is not my expertise! I’ll have to find a tutorial to help me out with that.
So there you go! For the price of a some Crystal Light containers and a can of chalkboard spray paint you can make some fun storage for your craft room. Best part? I have spray paint left over for something else!
Peace & Love,
