PB inspired Chalkboard Platter

I always tell my husband that when I grow up I want to be Martha Stewart and my house to look like pottery barn catalog. Well on a military income I can not afford to actually buy it from pottery barn so I get my inspiration from them instead. My latest inspiration is their chalkboard platter and I made it my own.

PB Platters

 My Platter

I bought the plate on the clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby and the chalkboard paint at wal-mart.

-Chalkboard Paint
- Platter
- Paint brush

It took about 3 coats of paint to get in completely covered. You must wait 24 hours between coats otherwise you will end up causing yourself more work.

This is a great product I like playing around with and will be using this again very soon......

Go Sharks....

Well I have not blogged in a while and lately I have been feeling extra crafty. I decided to make t-shirts to support my son's youth soccer team. They sell them but they want $20.00 for one of the jersey's and since I am a stay at home mom/full time student that was not in the budget right now.

I found a great idea here at making baby stuff for some inexpensive shirts and decided to give it a try.They were super easy and turned out pretty cute for my first attempt. I will be trying this out for the kids halloween shirts.
