Make Chalk Rocks and Homemade Chalk Board Paint ... Love the Ideas you could use this for... the author of the blog even states "There are so many possibilities and price is now no longer a factor! You could paint a whole room in chalk board paint! Your kids would think you were da bomb!"
R2D2 wastebasket star wars. $16.00, via Etsy. So....this would be easy enough to do DIY, don't you think. Buy a trashcan, mark it off, prime with plastic primer, paint and seal.
DIY: Chalkboard Mug - Naturally when I discovered porcelain chalkboard paint I had to grab some. Now I have the most amusing coffee mug ever, and you can have one too. No drawing or painting skills required!
