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.

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