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.

I'll show the teapots in another post here
