A Couple'a Chalkboard Projects

I've been admiring this picture while cruising Pinterest.
Have you seen it?
I'm pretty sure it's a Pottery Barn ad.
I've been lovin' that pan with the chalkboard paint...too cool!'s my version...

I found this 20" round pan at the thrift store for $9.00

A few coats of chalkboard paint....
Ta Da

I'm still going to keep searching for an oval pan, but I think this will do nicely in the meantime!

So, I also finished another chalkboard project which I thought of a while back.  I haven't seen this I possibly may have a new idea here!

A clipboard from the thrift store (usually under $1)

Simply tape off the 'clip part' and coat with chalkboard paint
I then tie on a piece of chalk with jute
Then I make an 'eraser' by stuffing a piece of ticking with polyfill and attach with jute also.

What ya think?

I'm linking up with Transformation Thursday


  1. Cool idea for clipboard recycling! I'll keep my eye out of an oval pan/tray!

  2. I love how you took an inspiration idea and made it your own...looks great! I love pinterest!

  3. I love both of them! Chalkboard paint it the best! I may have to try and find an oval platter!

    I hope you have a great weekend!


  4. I received a painted platter as a gift and now I am anxious to make one of my own. You did a great job!


  5. I love it. I'm afraid if I get started with that chalk board paint I won't know when to stop.

  6. I have a few of these and I have the chalk paint! I'm a copy cat you know. I'm still melting over that farm table you got!

  7. Love the little tie're so clever!


  8. I like that chalk paint platter and clipboard...chalk paint is so much fun to play with.


  9. I just made a bunch of chalkboards out of old silverplate trays for the show...never saw one on a clipboard...great idea!

  10. What great ideas! I'm going to be looking for trays now, and I may have to reinvent one of my old clipboards too!

  11. I so love blackboards. You've done a great job with yours. Love the clipboard one too!! Leahx
