DIY Chalkboard Painted Plate Tutorial…
July 30, 2012
I am finally completing some craft projects for my home that have been on my “to-do” list for sometime now. One of those was to turn a beautiful plate into an adorable chalkboard painted plate….
I absolutely love the way it turned out and it has a perfect home on the shelf in my kitchen bookcase! Here is how I created this simple but elegant chalkboard plate…
1 Ceramic Plate
Once you have washed your plate and thoroughly dried it, the first step is to tape off the area to be spray painted…
I used lots of little pieces of tape to make sure that I maintained the beautiful oval shape of the plate!
The next step is to tape newspaper over the area that you want to protect from the over spray of the Chalkboard Spray Paint…
Now I simply took the plate outside and placed it on a drop cloth and sprayed it with the Krylon Chalkboard Spray Paint!
I followed the instructions on the spray paint that included painting multiple light coats and then allowing it all to dry for 24 hours. I waited to remove the tape and newspaper until it was thoroughly dry..
This DIY Chalkboard Plate was the perfect accent for my book case…
The scalloped edges of the chalkboard painted plate really make it stand out! I also love my sweet little Burlap Covered Letter and my Vintage DIY Crates!
There is just something about chalkboards that instantly makes an area welcoming!
So, what have you painted with chalkboard paint lately?
