Chalkboard Paint Saves a Floral Display

Pin It

This was a thrift store find that was saved by the ever-miraculous chalkboard spray paint. Adorable now. Not so adorable when originally found. Here's the how-to...

  1. Start with a floral arrangement that needs a bit of work. The 80s-style ribbon and the pastel paint on the black pot just didn't work.
  2. Remove the ribbon. Don't despair if the glue takes off some color. It will all be fixed soon!
  3. Protect the floral arrangement by covering it with a plastic bag. Just tuck it around the edges.
  4. Get out your spray can of chalkboard paint. Spray on a couple light coats of the spray paint.
  5. After the paint dries, grab your chalk. Write an inspirational word (as shown in the first photo), a number (as shown in the last photo), or the message of your choice.
  6. Place your fun and updated project in a spot where it makes you happy! :)
  7. Blog about it so we can see your amazing transformation!!
