This Just in....I tried chalkboard paint!

Here's a nifty little idea that I came up with last week after being
slapped with  grasiously given  a thousand old chairs!
(seriously it was more like 33 but they are in STACKS!...geez!)

I FINALLY got my hands on a can of chalkboard paint.
I know ....I know.....where have I been right??
Anyway, I grabbed a piece of cardboard and made a stencil.
Freehanded...nothing perfect.
Mostly because I'm impatient and want to see the finished project already.
Anybody else like that?
And here ya go!
You could also do this on the back of the chair as well!
Took like 5 minutes a chair.
After I did this (and what you don't see here) is
I took and old feather pillow and cut it in half.
(YES....there were feathers......everywhere.)
I wanted to create a chair seat for each chair I did so I figured this would be easy too.
It really was except for the feathers  and the fact that my sewing machine is inside the shop and wellllll
let's just day that the feathers were an issue.
You can imagine.
Who knows what's going to get chalkboard paint on it next! This stuff is a blast!
I realize I'm probably  the very last person in blogland  to try this stuff....
But I am hooked and if you haven't tried it yet either....You better get goin!
You'll Love it!
Have a great day.
This post was invited to be a part of Thrifty Tuesday on Coastal Charm!
