My original plan was to come up with something similar for a couple of my beat up old pots (still in the works), but this year I decided to plant my herbs directly in the ground. With chalkboard paint still on the brain, (I couldn't let this idea go for some reason) I found a few leftover paint stirring sticks in the basement and thought they'd be the perfect markers for my newly planted herb garden. After two quick coats of Krylon's chalkboard spay paint, I followed the directions on the can, cured them, and voila: garden markers.
Not the fanciest, prettiest garden element, and in order to withstand the elements, I'll probably do some with more durable, outdoor friendly paint/finish and permanent marker, but I got the chalkboard paint thing out of my system and may have just found a new hobby: spray-painting. I'm sure my husband will be thrilled.
So, a cheesy little DIY moment that felt like an accomplishment after three fruitless visits
to the DMV in one week, but I digress...
