inspiration: Home Depot

It's not everyday that I walk into Home Depot and find inspiration for weddings.  Nor do I walk into Home Depot, really, ever.  Maybe I should start checking out hardware stores more often -- I may find some hidden gems.  So the other day I went with a friend to Home Depot to simply get some nails to hang up some pictures in my house.  Nothing special.  My friend, on the other hand, was looking for something more unique: chalkboard paint. 

I had always heard of it -- but I don't think the excitement of the paint really hit me until I saw it.  Not only did they have classic black chalkboard paint, but they also had one you could tint different colors!  Legit.  If you know me at all, I get excited about, well, pretty much everything.  Literally, it does not take much.

Anyways, I was inspired to share all the creatives ways you can use this paint in your event or wedding -- menus, favors, signage, escort cards, table numbers.  It's a great (and cheap!) DIY project for a bride on a budget.  Simply find someone with cool handwriting and you're in business!

I absolutely love these escort cards!  So creative!
Spice up a black background with bright chalk colors!
I think that says it all!
So who's going to be getting some chalkboard paint soon?  I sure am!
