Here is the original Pottery Barn inspiration:

Yep, those tins that cookies and such come in. I had these in my cabinet. But the thrift store has these all the time fornext to nothing. And some people throw these away…pfft…we are going to make them fabulous! I put some masking tape around the tip top of mine and used plastic wrap to keep the paint out of the inside. I would think that if you paint all the way to the top the lid would scratch off the paint. But if y’all are feeling courageous — go for it!
Now I spray painted mine with metal primer before the topcoat. But again — if you are courageous — you can skip it. And now for my grand secret ingredient….chalkboard paint!!! You can buy the chalkboard paint or try making your own. Yes, I spray painted the ENTIRE thing with chalkboard paint. (Follow the directions on the can pretty please — wait the time for it to dry and cover your surface with chalk before using.)The entire surface is a chalkboard. So if you are not into the PB look….
Best part — you can change em back and forth as many times as you like! I love mine and I am ready to do some more! I have one HUGE tin that I am thinking of doing and writing “Cookies” on it. I am a little obsessed with these chalkboard tins. I hope you are too…
