Make It By Monday: Chalkboard Pots

Sure, we may be a bit biased here, but we really love all things chalkboard, so it’s obvious why we flipped for this DIY project when we spotted it over at Martha Stewart. Just in time to add some potted herbs to your window sill or some succulents to your home to up the green quotient during winter, we think this Make It By Monday deserves an A+ grade!
