Project slated for today here at
The Cottage Market
China Plate Chalkboard/Blackboard
so you can imagine the mismatched plates that comes my way!
Piles of saucers which we took care of with another Cinch project…then there were mismatched china teapots…creamers and more which we created an Anthropologie inspired Cinch project with…and now for those stacks of cake plates…the solution could not be easier…literally you will be done in 1/2 and hour and if you don’t count drying time…5 minutes!!!
What will you need?
That’s it…a pretty cake plate or of course you can make a larger one…a thin 1/8″ wood circle (available at Michael’s and other craft shops) A strong glue…a brush and some blackboard paint. I am trying to truly limit my use of aerosol so I have started using the brush type…works fabulously without a strong odor and without the horrible effect on the ozone : ) EZ PZ right!
Sand your wooden disc.
Paint your wooden disc with at least 3 coats of chalkboard paint…want to amp up the drying time…fire up that hair dryer baby!
Apply a nice coat of glue…press and allow to dry.
Write a little note…wash…repeat…over and over and over again!
That is how CINCHY it is to make a…
So if you have a ton of plates you don’t know what to do with or just one that has been hanging around a little too long…turn it into a unique and wonderful gift for MOM or for anyone in your life…trust me they will love it…tuck a little easel in the package or maybe a plate hanger…I know it will be a gift that says you care and no one has to know that it
