You can absolutely use these decorative chalkboard plates anywhere in the house, but the kitchen was my favorite spot! Whether you want to leave a quick note, the upcoming menu, or an encouraging word, this is a super cute way to do it! Here's what you'll need...
Plates (one's you don't want to eat on!! This is a great way to use mismatched or chipped pieces you love, or find cheap ones at a garage sale or thrift store that you like the rims!)
Begin by deciding if you want to make the entire inner part of the plate a chalkboard or just a stripe of it. I decided to do some of both, so I used the painter's tape to mark where I wanted the paint to be.
Next apply 2 coats of the chalkboard paint in even strokes and let dry for 24 hours.
When the paint is fully dry in 24 hours grab your chalk!! Prepare the chalkboard by simply covering the entire painted surface in chalk and wiping away. After that you're done! (I'm assuming this is how all chalkboard paint works-but double check the instructions on your can of paint to make sure! It should be very easy to work with like mine thought.)
This was such a fun afternoon project and the possibilities with these are endless!
