I am still having fun hanging out with my in-laws visiting us from South Africa.
With the heat in Phoenix this time of year, everyone is constantly drinking something...water, soda, juice, etc.
And everyone is constantly looking for their glass, and accusing me (can you believe it!) of putting it in the dishwasher when they specifically asked me not to, since they were going to use it again...
Last night I remembered something I saw at CostPlus World Market a few months back, and have always wanted to do myself, but never got around to it.
I got out my chalkboard paint and primer right then and there, and, impulsive person that I am, did this little project while we were waiting for the chicken to BBQ.
Oupa and Ouma from South Africa
Started out with these glasses. I just used a sponge brush and painted a strip of primer the width of the brush across the glass.
Let it dry, and painted on the chalkboard paint.
Now we can write our names on our glasses with chalk while we use it! Cool huh?
My plan was to do this sort of casual and imperfect, but next time I think I will tape it off neatly and do a nice, precise little label.
