Tonight's post is just about the tutorials...
Tutorial #1: Easy Peasy Chalkboards!!
- Picture frames or mirrors from your local thrift store (I scored mine for .69 and .99!!)
- A can of chalkboard spray paint
I removed the glass from the picture frames. I had to tape out the mirror because it was not removable. I really had no clue if the paint would work on these surfaces, but I'm here to tell you it did!! I did these on my back porch for quick drying time in the sun. I did about 3 layers and let each layer dry completely before I did the next. Of course I also sprayed the frames to add some color, but that just took a couple coats of your standard spray paint. I loved how these turned out. The possibilities are endless for these little beauties!
OMG... They were so good! Thank you to my good friend who is a baking goddess.
Sorry I got sidetracked! I love cupcakes... Here is another "chalkboard." This one welcomed the guests and told them to "Grab a Stache." This is after the party, of course it looks a little messy, but you get the idea.
