You all know how I love the chalkboard look, right? Inspired by this and the visual trend of crisp black and white mixed with old world charm I noticed when in Amsterdam this fall, I had an idea for a party look I wanted to create. This project started when I opened my 12-Months of Martha box and found these two bottles of chalkboard paint; black and mint. I think mint is quickly becoming my new favorite color. It is that subtle space between teal and lime and a bit tricky to find. The Martha Stewart chalkboard paint is the perfect mint! So with these I painted my less-than-pretty-but-very-practical cork coasters with black on side one to personalize with names for a party and the mint on the other size for a fresh accent. I paired these up with a chalkboard painted crate and mini chalkboard frame to create a personalized party. Oh so pretty. Enjoy! ~ Lia
