blackboard placemats

happy Wednesday to everyone!
i have a fun and inexpensive project to share with you today.

if you love browsing the op shops like me, i'm sure you
have come across more than a few daggy sets of placemats.
well next time you do, how about buying a set and having a go at this!

i found these for $2.
i gave them i light sand
Kace was keen to help, so she did the 1st coat of Blackboard paint.
she'd had enough after that, so i finished them off!
such a simple and thoughtful gift for someone wrapped up
with roughly cut sheer fabric.
or use them yourself!
our table is all set for tonight.
i think these would be great for b'day parties. they could
then be sent home as a party favour.
or fabulous at a wedding!

picked this rusty old beauty up last week too.
i have other sets that are for sale. email if you are interested :)
