Chalkboard two ways

Submitted to Community Café

Chalkboard two ways.

Used chalkboard spray paint to rehab my chalkboard surface.

When it came to painting these patterned placemats, unfortunately  I ran out of the chalkboard spray paint.

Read about a solution and it worked nicely.
Used Rustoleums 2x flat black for complete coverage followed by a seal using Modepodge chalkboard on top. For the potential exposure of food or liquid to the placemat -the addition of a sealer was likely the best choice.

Have a look at those unloved thrift store patterned cork backed placemats with new interest.
