Default Check out my DIY Beer Chalkboard!

This is a round piece of wood from Home Depot. It has rounded edges and it cost me $10.97
The chalk board paint was $4.97
We already had primer to go under the chalkboard paint, and I have an endless supply of acrylic paints. Took me about 2 hours, and I primed (3 coats and a light sanding with 220) and put the chalkboard (3 coats) on yesterday.
But in case you're wondering, I used 3 colors....
Grass Green
Lush Foliage
Shamrock Green

What do you think guys?

Lol..Thanks! I'm a DIY kind of gal! I like to make sure that the end result is going to be something I like.

The Bud light is leftover from a friends Call of Duty 4 Party. He pissed me off and so I told him he owed me beer. That is what I received. I figured I'd put it on the board in an effort to rid my fridge of it. Knowing that some of our guests will most assuredly drink it.

Looks great... chalk board paint rocks! I did part of my keezer with it and love it.

Pretty cool... I have a wall in my basement painted with that stuff! However, the cuteness around the edges are beyond me!
