Goodwill Craft – Chalkboard Paint Makes Anything Look Good

Last summer I was perusing all sorts of thrift/junk/”vintage” stores in search of anything that I could salvage into something cute. Literally hoping to turn trash into treasure for the business that my friend and I were hoping to create.

Well, I found these wooden hearts at a Goodwill store nearby for 25 cents each. A little too “80’s country” for my taste but they had POTENTIAL!

So I came home laid my handy dandy tarp out on the garage floor and painted each one with 3-4 coats of chalkboard spray paint, added a cute little ribbon and TADA………

Cute little chalkboard signs for only 25 cents each. Now I had the spray paint already and the ribbon but if you end up going out today to buy a can of chalkboard paint, it will last you a long time (that is unless you plan on spraying an entire chalkBOARD on your wall, then you will need a few more cans!)



Happy Spray Painting!!


I love to write about my family, John Hughes, tacos and Bruce Hornsby. Not necessarily in that order.
