Watering Can Chalkboards

 After making my watering can sign which I posted about previously, I thought of using the same shape for a chalkboard.

So... I cut a few out of pine and then cut a few teapot shaped ones as well. 
I put a coat of shellac over them which stops knots from showing through.

One is painted silver, although you can't really tell in the photo below, it is a shiny metallic paint:

The other one I dabbed with vaseline (but not in the center area where the chalkboard paint would go) and then painted it white and rubbed off the vaseline after the paint dried.
I drilled a hole in the top to hold chalk and put a sawtooth hanger on the back.

15 3/4" wide x 11 3/4" high

I'll show the teapots in another post here.

Everything I make is for sale... please check my For Sale page here, or my etsy page.
