Chalkboard Paint on Wood Shapes

I had a lot of fun doing this simple craft project using black and turquoise chalkboard paint and wood shapes I bought from Michaels. All I had to do was use two coats of the paint on the shapes and let them dry about an hour between each coat of paint. You can do this project with children and let them write fun messages on the chalkboard.

Tiffany Blue Decorations

I have seen so many beautiful and unique Tiffany Blue themed weddings and parties over the past couple of years. It is such a beautiful color, and I spent several hours thinking of ways I could incorporate it inside my home. After some research, I fell in love with the Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze spray paint. I did several projects with this paint, and I am excited to share them on this blog.

For the first project, I used:

  • Plate, bowl, and candle holder from Dollar Tree
  • Gorilla Glue
  • Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze Spray Paint
  • Krylon Looking Glass Spray Paint
  • Mod Podge Pearlized Glaze
  • Zinsser Odorless Primer Sealer

****Don’t forget to clean and prime the dishes first if any of you will try this project at home. I have made this mistake before, and the paint chipped off. The primer will help the paint adhere to the dishes.

While the paint on the dishes were drying, I painted the candle holder with the Looking Glass paint. I love this spray paint because it gives the glass a mirror look.

I waited about 24 hours before I glued everything together. Then I sprayed the finished project with the Mod Podge glaze.

I love the way this project turned out. I may use it to hold my jewelry or as a table centerpiece.

For the next project, I used:

 

  • Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze Spray Paint
  • Mod Podge Pearlized Glaze
  • Zinsser Odorless Primer Sealer
  • Fine Grit Sandpaper
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Wooden Tray

I started by sanding, priming, then spray painting the wooden tray. I traced the shape of the tray on the scrapbook paper so that the paper could fit into the bottom of the tray. Then I finished the tray by spraying it with the Mod Podge glaze.

These were two very easy projects to complete. The hardest thing I had to do was wait while everything dried. I love the color of this spray paint, and I am looking forward to using it on other items in my house.
