And is there anything better than knowing you've got dinner going at 9 am? I think not.
Mine had a removable insert though I'm guessing you could do this on any crock pot since you never fully submerge them in water anyway.
Step 1- VERY IMPORTANT- clean all grease off outside of crock pot.
Step 2- Tape off every place you do not want painted. I kept the handles and top and bottom edges and knob taped off. I used really good painters tape and had zero bleed through. I recommend spending more to get the best quality painters tape. Do it and thank me later.
Step 3- Prime entire crock pot with spray paint primer. (I got mine at Lowes) It is a gray color and I only needed one coat. I let this dry an entire day even though it was dry to the touch. I didn't want any flaking off later.
Step 4- Coat with chalk board spray paint (also at Lowes) and let dry 24 hrs, then spray second coat. Let dry another 24 hours.
Step 5- Untape and season chalk surface by placing chalk sideways on crock pot surface and rubbing all over, then erasing.
**NOTES: I don't recommend using a chalk pen on this as they have a way of becoming permanent with spray painted chalk surfaces in my experience. (I did use one for "off" "med" and "high" because that's okay to be permanent.)
**It worked just fine and the heat didn't have any impact on the chalk surface. Overall, I am so happy I did this!
birthday wishes. I was spoiled ridiculously rotten by my people. We still have a bit more celebrating to do the back half of this week because why have a birthDAY when you can have a birthWEEK, I always say. More to come on that...
(I wrote these sayings with a calligraphy pen and filled them with baggies of marshmallows and grahams and a hershey bar. I put the little toasting sticks under the folds and then secured it with washi tape. We probably won't use the toasting sticks because you know kids and open flames. We'll see. Ha!)
regular sight just before dinner.
brown transferware for my collection at a consignment store and if I told you how much they were you would just die... they were SO inexpensive. I couldn't walk away!!! These are big and small platters... Now I'm on the hunt for a few more dinner plates. I love how none of them match!
