the many uses of chalkboard paint

I am obsessed with my chalkboard wall. I have Pinterest boards and albums on my phone just for chalkboard wall inspiration. But you can paint more than just a wall. You can paint all kinds of things. And many of these things make great and thoughtful but also unique gifts at a bargain. Soooo.... Just saying. 

Chalkboard Platter:
I found this one at Target last year around Valentine's Day but have yet to find another I enjoy as much again. It's plastic and it was cheap. I love the shape too! Since then I've just purchased chargers but the shape (round or square) isn't quite as fun.And I assure you, should you leave it on top of your vehicle before driving away it will break. Cough. Mark. Cough.

Chalkboard Wine Bottle:
My sister got one of these before she got married and I always envied it. So I just visited my recycling bin, removed the label and painted away!

Chalkboard Picture Frame:
Now you could paint the frame itself but I just wanted a small print for my bedroom. I probably won't be changing it too often. I just painted the cardboard backing that came with the frame.

Chalkboard Planter:
You could paint the whole thing or just a label sized part or just the rim, possibilities are endless. It could also be a fun Mother's Day gift.

Chalkboard Label on a Decanter:
I used masking tape because the painter's tape was hidden somewhere I could not locate it. I look forward to bringing this out for our next function. Whatever that may be. 
Anyone else have any fun uses for chalkboard paint? I'm all ears...
