Introduction: Chalk Board Salt and Pepper Shakers

About: I am married with two children. Spring, summer, and fall are my very favorite times of the year. I enjoy working in the yard, sewing, cooking, quilting, gardening, and creating. I do this to keep my sanity.

Here is another one of my Chalk Board projects. I love working with this paint. For this particular project; I decided not to use chalk on them, instead I used Slick paint for the lettering. This paint has a great texture and classy look.

Step 3: Prep Work

Tape the writing section of the bottle at the top and bottom of the lettering as shown.

Paint the first coat of Chalk board paint on the bottles.
Allow to dry for 1 hour.
Meanwhile drill the holes as shown in the next step.

Step 5: Drill the Holes

Drill the holes in the bottle caps the size and number you want.
I gave 2 shakes to each shaker and you can see how much came out using the purchased caps.
We thought they worked great!

Step 6: Paint 2ND Coat

Paint the 2ND coat of paint on the bottles.
Allow to dry for 24 hours.
After 24 hours lightly rub chalk over the painted surface to condition the board.
Gently wash with a damp cloth with mild soap.
Let dry.
Paint the S and P using the slick paint.
Allow to completely dry.
Carefully remove the tape.

Step 7: Fill Bottles

Fill the bottles with the salt and pepper.
