I found these perfect chalkboard platters through Pottery Barn.  As with EVERYTHING I fall in love with at Pottery Barn I try to wait it out.  I just can’t see spending the money, but in the end I always end up shooting myself in the foot because I wait too long.  The moment I ever pull the trigger and decide to make the purchase, the item is no longer.  It’s like a sick joke they play on me.   Naughty PB.  As was with the chalkboard platters.  I can’t even remember how much they were, but they were just enough, to be too much.  So when I couldn’t find them any longer (after a brief panic session) I decided I could make the darn things myself.  So I found 2 white platters for pretty cheap and bought some chalkboard paint from Michael’s, along with a sponge paint brush.  2 layers of chalkboard paint later – Done!  Ok….I fib….a little.  I needed husband’s help.  I can’t paint a straight line to save my soul.  Husband painted the inside of our house without taping the ceiling.  He is amazing.  So, I volunteered him to do his perfect straight lines (after pleading….a lot) on the platters.  Last thing I needed was plate hangers which I got at Aaron Brothers.

So, if you want a chalkboard, run your pretty little bootie on over to Michael’s and grab yourself some chalkboard paint.  Basically you could make anything into a chalkboard, the possibilities are endless and hey…..it makes for a great time on a Friday night when there aint schtuff going on!
