Have you joined in on the extremely popular shabby chic trend yet? Have you tried using chalk paint yet? If not GO BUY SOME NOW! Seriously chalk paint is amazing! I absolutely love it. It’s super easy to use, goes on almost any surface and looks fantastic when it dries. I love the almost milky look and soft texture it provides.
These chalk paint mason jars make the perfect 1st time project. They are inexpensive, simple and make the perfect centerpiece for any table.
To make this centerpiece all you need is 3 jars, 1 can of Krylon Chalkboard spray paint, Americana Chalk Paint (you can do all three the same color or each a different color like I did), sandpaper and a paint brush. If you want to give your centerpiece a finishing touch pick up some fresh or silk flowers.
Now for the details…it’s really quite simple. First spray each jar with a nice even coat of the Krylon Chalkboard spray paint.
Once the paint has dried completely generously brush on a heavy coating of your chalk paint color of choice. You may need to do a few coats to fully cover the black, however chalk paint dry’s insanely fast.
Now that your jars and fully painted and the paint is totally dry. Take a piece of sandpaper and gently rub away some of the paint around your jar, allowing the black chalkboard paint to show through.
Finish with some pretty flowers and viola you have a new centerpiece for your dining room table, coffee table, or even for a dinner event or wedding!
