I think I'm obsessed with this chalkboard paint! Last week I shared a recycled Birchbox box DIY using the chalkboard paint to create a fun, functional storage box. This week I'm sharing how to make a cool chalkboard storage dish for your jewelry, keys, change, etc! This is an affordable DIY too because the dishes are wooden dishes from the thrift store. I've had these dishes for ages not knowing what to do with them but knowing I wanted to paint them. I just could never commit to a color but once I fell in love with chalkboard paint it was a match made in DIY heaven.
Supplies: chalkboard paint (I used this one), wooden dishes (I found these at the thrift store, seriously you can find them by the dozen!), sandpaper, paint brushes, 24hours+ in time
First you'll need to step outside & do a little sanding. It doesn't matter if your sandpaper is new or if you pulled it from a used sheet in the garage (that's what I did) you just need something with a little grit to take off that top layer of varnish on your wooden bowl.
Now this dish lives in the planter box/catch all tray at the entry way. There's also a second, divided bowl, that I've written his & hers on! I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet.
Anything else that can be covered in chalkboard paint? I want to know!
