Chalkboard Paint

Yes, I said it... chalkboard P-A-I-N-T! If you haven't tried it, you really should! When I saw that one of my fav party blogs Pizzazzerie, featured chalkboard paint yesterday & I just knew I had to pass along the post for you to check out for yourself! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you check out the entire post, it's chock full of fun! Here a taste of some of the fun featured on Pizzazzerie + you can find who created these delicious do-dads!
I have used chalkboard paint many times and it's easy to work with, and it's not just for painting on walls any more...  recently I used it on those cute Silver Trays from Dollar Tree (our local $1 store) and made message boards for a party... they sit nicely on an easel in an entry way as a welcome sign or directional signage for your guests (like the one I made, pictured below)... or you can punch two holes in the top/edging & lace some beautiful ribbon through it, and have a beautiful message board to hang on a door or wall. And since it's chalkboard paint, you can erase & re-use the message boards over & over... so fun! 
BTW... if you haven't seen the cute nickel/silver $1 trays from the Dollar Tree, click HERE. They are fab! So many uses... great for party trays, for passing appetizers, dessert displays and they have a round size that would make a really cute charger under a party plate, at a tea party, elegant dinner or wedding shower.

Isn't it great to know that the Dollar Tree has a website! Of course, my local store is great for stopping by and picking up a few items, but if you need bulk ordering on line is a great option. And in some cases, you can have your on line order shipped to your local store for pick up! So convenient.
