I was so happy Mandi invited me over and I decided to share a little DIY that's been in my head for the past few weeks.
One of the best things about this little idea is that it's a great way to repurpose some of those free mugs you may have laying around.
Materials: one or more mugs,painters tape,exacto knife,chalkboard paint,newspaper
First decide where you want the chalkboard to be. This may depend on your mug and what you're trying to cover up. Then put your painters tape on the mug. For the quote bubble, I covered the area in tape then drew a quote bubble shape and cut it out around it with an exacto knife. Then removed the tape. Put some newspaper into the mug to protect it from paint.
Next is the painting. Go by the directions of your paint. In my case it was necessary to do two coats in order for it to work as a chalkboard.
When both coats of paint are dry remove the tape. Some paint may have bled through.
