Hooray Chalkboard Paint!

I am getting addicted to chalkboard paint. Seriously, the other night I was looking around the house trying to find things to put it on!

I got a big, free, pizza pan this past weekend that was in need of a makeover! 
My project is now complete! *insert evil laugh!*

Before:
This pan had probably seen many pizzas!



 After:

Cost:
Chalkboard Paint- $8.98
Ribbon- 1.99
Chalk- 1.47 (I didn't have any)
Total: $12.44

Not bad for a new, magnetic chalkboard! :) I was very nervous using the chalkboard paint for the first time. I used a sponge brush, one I had from using my Mod Podge :) There are tiny lines in the paint (because I rushed), but overall I love how it turned out! 

It makes me smile and it brightens up the kitchen :)
