So, I can take NO credit for this idea. I saw it in Pottery Barn (2 platters for over $100) and thought that I could make that. It is not a new idea. I have seen chalkboard paint added to all sorts of serving dishes to make cute decor for your kitchen or walls.
Here is my finished product
This is all it took: A serving piece you like (I have also seen this done with a silver platter and it was so cute) , chalkboard paint, and a paint brush. I did not finish mine out with anything, so I will be interested to see how it holds up if I write on it a lot. The paint is not completely smooth because of the brush strokes, but it still looks really cute. If anyone has any tips I would love to hear them.
Speaking of Super Bowl Sunday, I never posted any pictures. We had our Sunday School class over to "watch" the game. Although, there was little watching. We had 25 adults and almost 15 kiddos (and more on the way!) It was lots of fun!
Ironically, our Sunday school leaders are moving to Little Rock in the near future to work for the Family Life Ministry. They are so sad about leaving Waco and their Baylor Bears behind, which we totally understand. But, we keep telling them how much fun they will have being in the SEC and in a state that LOVES and supports their Razorbacks! On one of my trips to Arkansas, I brought some Hog gear back for them! This is Brandon, the Barber's youngest. He lit up when we gave him his Razorback gifts! I think he is a little more excited about the Razorbacks than the rest of the family.
