Chalk Board Placemats

This is a Pinteresting inspired post.  I had a ton of these placemats on hand so I painted them with chalk board paint  I plan to use these 4th of July weekend.  I think they are a great idea.  Use them as place cards, condiment labels, wine identifiers, kids' parties.  After the meal they can graffiti on them and take them home.  You know how kids love to draw and write on things.  The one I saw on Pinterest was actually a table runner. 

Have a great weekend everyone.
