My husband and I bought a new house about 20 months ago and it has since been going through some rigorous renovation works. I took the opportunity to use some of the remnants from my new house renovation to create all kinds of craft projects. The workers are current laying down the parquet flooring and there are plenty of wood to play with!

While the workers were busy laying down the timber flooring, I took the some batons scraps to make these mini chalkboard flower pot stands. The best part is that I get help from these workers to saw the batons with their electric saw. Ha, that saves my trouble to saw the wood by hand! With the available wood adhesive on the site, I glued the batons into flower pot stands and sprayed paint it with my new toy - chalkboard paint.
Chalkboard paint is not easily available in
though they are factories
manufactured this paint for export. I am very lucky to have a bottle to play
with. While I have not try it myself, I have learned that it is pretty simple
to make chalkboard paint. Grout is a key ingredient and I saved some from the balance
of the recent tiling work at the new house. I am looking forward to trying it
out soon. Click here for a tutorial for making chalkboard paint. Malaysia

The newly bought cactus plants sit prettily in these mini wooden flower pot stands. Lovely! I will find a nice spot for them when I move into the new house.
