DIY Menu Blackboard Tiles!

by Nicole on July 30, 2012

Morning! How was your weekend? Seems like I write this every Monday. This weekend we celebrated my cousin Jess’s graduation with a little party at my house.

With all the great ideas I find on Pinterest, I wanted to do something fun for Jess’s party. I wanted to do something to label all of the food we were putting out and at first I was thinking mini chalk boards. After seeing that they were about $6-8 a piece, I wanted to do something a little more reasonable. I found a great idea to use corner tiles as white boards, but as a teacher, I know how easy they would smudge. I kicked it up and notch and used some blackboard paint I bought (to do nothing with) months ago.

Jess and I got to work on Saturday and painted 8 corner tiles and 1 8×8 tile. They were both just white and cost a total of about $13.00 (not including blackboard paint.) I love the idea of this because you can use them over and over again and they are super cute.

This was one of my first DIY projects since my wedding 4 years ago, I’d say it worked out pretty well!

One more pic from the party:

I’m off to go for a walk and continue my workday!

Have a good one!
