Get Your DIY on: Chalkboard Projects {& Features!}


Ok seriously…. what is better than Ryan Gosling talking about chalkboard paint? Are y’all having fun?  We sure hope so!

It has been amazing seeing all of your projects each week.  Thank you all for following along with us. We hope you are finding some inspiration!

Let’s take a look at the features from last week’s spray painting theme!  These were so much fun. It’s amazing what a can or two of spray paint can do!

 First up, The Chicken Chick shows us how to make plain glass look like Mercury glass. Stop by and see the before, it’s an amazing transformation!

Do you recognize this cart? It’s a projector/media cart…like the ones your teacher would roll into the classroom! Remember being so excited when you showed up to class and this cart was all set up with the TV ready go?!  This was really gross, but Julie at Being Home made it gorgeous!


Finally, I am loving the transformation of this little table.  Who knew a TV tray could look so chic? Grey Luster Girl repurposed this table she’d had for years into a nightstand. You have to see the before! Oh the power of a little spray paint!

  1. Thanks for hosting another great party – love the chalkboard theme…. Cathy

  2. I love chalkboard art! Thanks so much for hosting this! 🙂

  3. I love making chalkboards. I keep watching out for silver trays, wooden trays, discarded kitchen cabinet doors, frames with board inserts, metal containers… Great idea to hold a chalkboard party.

  4. Ha! Christy, you had me cracking up. Yeah, I guess that cart was pretty gross. lol Especially, the top of it and the wheels. All kinds of sticky sludge there. Thank you so much for featuring my Pix Mobile cart makeover. Movie day in class equals, good times. 😉

    Have a fantastic week!
