DIY Metallic Chalkboard Table Number

DIY Projects

Alisa Lewis Event Design is going to show us how she made these metallic chalkboard table numbers from this tablescape she created. There’s nothing that couldn’t use a bit of gold metallic chalk paint, and I already have a list of things at home just for this. Thanks so much to Urban Rose Photo for these images!

Supplies:

  • simple wood boxes (we found ours in the Target Dollar section)
  • white paint or any coordinating paint

  • medium paint brush or sponge brush
  • stencil of desired shape
  • chalk or chalk pen

Directions:

  • mix 2 parts plaster to 1 part paint in a bowl or container
  • use a stencil to trace the desired shape of the chalkboard you want onto your box or container
  • use a medium paint brush to paint the chalkboard paint inside your stencil
  • let the chalkboard paint dry as you paint the rest
  • after they have dried you now have a chalkboard on your box or container

    I love this idea – how simple and easy to do! I know a lot of people who’d love it too!

    Should the recipe be two parts paint to one part plaster? As written (for me at least) I couldn’t get it to mix – the paint almost seized up. Added more paint and it seemed to work ok. Other recipes I’ve tried suggest dissolving the plaster in water before adding the paint, so I was excited to try this version. Thanks for the tutorial – your planters look fabulous!
