More fun with chalkboard paint

I have been looking for a little tree for Averi's bird theme nursery for quite a while. Nothing that I found was close enough to the "look" I was going for until this weekend when I was shopping the Kohl's clearance section. I found this tree on clearance for $4 and knew right away that it was perfect. I took a before picture {see below} but that was after I had removed the mini eggs that were hanging from it, which by the way are adorable so I saved them to be used on a future decorating craft.

The only thing that I didn't like about this tree was the color of the pot because it did not match Averi's room at all. Since I was already using the chalkboard spray paint for this project I figured I would paint the pot with it as well and it turned out great! It is the perfect addition to Averi's shelf.

I'm linked up to Just A Girl linky party! Check it out....

Cute! Glad to see you have been fitting in some projects, I sure haven't.

Great idea! It matches much better now and I love that you can personalize the flower pot, too. Seems like we've both been painting pots lately! :)
Happy Spring!

I would have never thought of that. But now, I can think of alot of fun places to use chalkboard paint. You have inspired me. Thanks for sharing.
