Cost Plus World Market Chalkboard paint knockoff

So the other day, while sorting through my scrap pile looking for wood to build an outdoor rustic shelf, I found a piece of scrap wood that I had used to test a “gray wash” stain. I sampled so many finishes before finally committing to Rustoleum’s Early American for my farmhouse table.

Immediately, I knew this was the piece for a chalkboard beach sign. If you missed my earlier post, check it out here: {{posted on Weekend Knockoff #1}}

I just love this Cost Plus World Market “Beach” Sign made with chalkboard paint.

Cost Plus Chalkboard Direction Sign $12.99

This sign is truly inexpensive, but again NOT FREE!!

I made my version with supplies I already had. I promise I didn’t go to the store for anything!! I even dug through every outdoor toy box to find a piece of chalk to write with :-)

I cut this piece of scrap wood at a 45 degree angles to make an arrow shape, taped off the edges with 1 inch painters tape and painted the center with Rustoleum Chalkboard Paint.

I touched up the stain minimally and attached the Jute rope to the back with a staple gun.

Here are a few more shots:

It’s amazing how many places you can hide toys while still attempting to be stylish!!

A great rustic beach sign that is versatile. You can use it for any message you want, use it for notes on your front door…the possibilities are endless. if you have any chalkboard paint projects, please share them here with links in the comments below.

I (Heart) Spray Paint

So what do you think about a diy project that would take about 5 minutes of your time and cost less than 10 bucks?

Now that’s a busy mom’s kind of project!!

And yes, as you guessed, it involves spray paint. I am in love with the Rustoleum Hammered Metal spray paint. You cannot go wrong with this stuff. It’s the same spray paint I used on my indoor outdoor stool makeover, just a different color this time.

I found this plant stand at a garage sale for $10 $5. Remember prices are always negotiable! Here is the before picture…

Plant stand before

Just a little too “Ninety’s” shiny for my taste.

It took me about 3 minutes to cover (I only needed one coat) and another 5 minutes to dry to the point of handling. I would wait a full 24 hours before using it.

And here is the after….

Seriously, little things make such a difference!!

Finished Plant Stand

I just love succulents, and love the combination with a Rubber Plant to fill in some empty space on my patio. Check out another one of my “spray paint projects” here.
