Wood Slice Mini Chalkboards

These wood slices didn't start out as you might think...

On the clearance table at the West Elm store 
were wood slice coasters for $2.95 a set that were painted with 
holiday messages...

The second I saw them I knew they would be 
perfect to try out my new DecoArt chalkboard paint.

I gave each wood slice 2 coats of chalkboard paint.

The paint went on smoothly and covered completely.

When the chalkboard paint was dry I rubbed the side
of chalk on the wood slice to prep the chalkboards.

I drilled a hole and strung the chalkboard with a length of jute.

These little cuties turned out great and there was
no wood cutting involved this time.

I love the DecoArt chalkboard paint and can't wait 
to use it again... I have an idea already picked out!

  1. Love them now! Don't be surprised if West Elm steals your idea for next season as they look soooooo much better with the chalk paint!


  2. They look great Susan, and you can use them all year round too!
