Chalkboard Party

Gina at
is hosting a Crazy About Chalkboards Party on Friday, June 26th. Stop and see all of the creative uses for Chalkboard Paint.

This was going to be the object I converted into a chalkboard but got delayed due to the window being left out in the rain and a critter then knocking it over and breaking the glass.

It is still going to get overhauled into a chalkboard, just not in time for the party.
On to Plan B

I have saved these containers knowing they were a good size for something. I spray painted the lids with Chalkboard Spray Paint and then painted the bottoms....instant unique gift wrap.


  1. I am so glad you had a plan B! I have quite a bit of cbp left over and this is an idea I can really use!

  2. Now this is a clever idea for gift wrap!!! Like Jane, I have paint leftover and this is a great use to finishing it off. TFS!

  3. love the idea of the lids, gives me an idea!!!

  4. I love this idea! No more wondering what's inside.
    Good job.

  5. What a great idea! Loving the idea of so many chalkboards under a Christmas tree!

    So much creativity out there today! Thanks for joining.

  6. I seriously thought I wouldn't see anything new in this chalkboard party (But was excited to see all of the projects!) but I'm just blown away at the new ideas. Painting the lids is genius!

    I hope your other project gets finished soon because it's going to be lovely.

  7. So sorry about your window! I'm sure it will be great when it's fixed up. And what a creative way to repurpose those containers!


  8. What a cute idea. Too bad about the rain/critter thing. Oh, hey! I just read on some blog that isn't related to the chalkboard party that you can get chalkboard STICKERS at Walmart! Isn't that cool! :)

  9. ohhhh!!! I just HAVE to steal this idea! Thank you for posting it. It's perfect for gifts and ALSO to organize my kid's toys in their rooms, thank you!

  10. Very clever idea - I definitely need to source from chalkboard paint here in Ireland.

  11. very cute! :) You have a new follower. :)
