DIY Mint Green Chalk Board

Mint green is a color we haven't seen in a very long time until recently when it was reintroduced back into fashion and home decor.

At first glance, you may think of 1986 and remember your Swatch Watch, a pair of stirrup pants, or hair scrunchy you had that was mint green.

And who knows, you probably decorated your bedroom with the colors peach and mint green.......oh, wait, that was just me. sorry! LOL :)

Yes, mint green disappeared after the 80's and we haven't seen much of it until recently, and now I can't get enough of it.

So when Ace Hardware hosted one of its Free Paint Saturdays a week or so ago I took advantage of it and picked myself up a free quart of Clark & Kensington paint in a color called St.Johns Bay

My paint color turned out to be a bit more on the aqua side than I had planned, but I really like the color and decided to tackle a small craft project that had been on my list for quite some time now.......this little chalk board.

Now I can't wait to use this color on some furniture! :) and the best part about that it was free!
