Pottery Barn Rock Off

The Pottery Barn catalog arrived in our mailbox not long ago.  The one that features all the very hip, very now, very expensive new ways to decorate for Halloween.  It is probably a good thing I have learned to live on a budget, or else I might want to spend $16 for a set of 4 of these chalkboard rocks.  They looked so cool in the PB setup.
I'm sure there are men out there in the world, right now, who are staring incredulously at their credit card bills and questioning the sanity of their wives.  "You paid $16 plus $5.95 shipping for a bag of 4 black rocks?  Couldn't the gardener find any you liked?"

The Bionic Man will never need to have a conversation with me like that, because I have a can of black chalkboard spraypaint.
Naturally, I had to outdo Pottery Barn, so my chalkboard rocks are colorfully decorated.  That right there is a pumpkin on a chalkboard rock.  To really compete, I think I'm going to have to find larger, smoother stones.

Anyone have a stone to throw my way?


  1. You crack me up. Loved the comment about some men out there staring at their cc statements in disbelief. Yeah, I too would refuse to pay $16.95 plus shipping for four black rocks.

    You are so crafty. I am too but lack the time to be able to do it. Someday. I did collect acorns the other day for a fun fall decor project I am doing for a centerpiece. Hopefully I'll get to it soon though.

  2. I love your rocks! I might have to try this! Thanks for stopping by!
