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......


  1. Where in walmart did you get that chalkboard paint? Your plate looks great!

  2. I found it in the craft isle where all the acrylic paint is.
