Anthropologie chalkboard placemats hack

Anthropolgie Chalkboard place mat

$28 for a set of 25

Yeah, I don’t need 25. Maybe for a birthday party… I just need 2 for right now. So off to the Ol’ Dollar Tree for 2 plastic placemats and I already had some chalkboard spray paint. You can pick a can up at craft stores, Wal-Mart and Amazon.

I actually had these placemats on hand. You can pick them up at yard sales, Dollar Tree, Wal-Mart, Target, and Amazon. You could have some on hand from when your kids were toddlers. I had a Dora and Princess one.

$1-$1.50 placemat

$3-$5 can of chalkboard spray paint (don’t forget to use a coupon at the craft stores)

$1-$2 chalk

I used chalkboard paint on the bottom one with a sponge paintbrush. Spray paint works better. Two coats on a plastic placemat and Bam! instant doodle pad.
