Chalk board painted tea tins

My family and I enjoy a good cup of tea.


Yes we go the whole nine yards with tea pot, tea cups, creamer and traditional sugar  bowl just about every day because like I said we do enjoy a good cuppa tea! Now all this tea drinking creates a bit of a conglomeration of loose leaf and bagged teas (loose leaf is by far the best).


Wanting to make sense of this mess I decided to use some old tins as my tea containers. I scraped off all the paper and than continued to clean the glue off with Goo Gone.


It cleaned off really nice! 

Next I picked up some spray chalk board paint and spray painted them. 

They turned out really nice! Now I can use the tins for any tea that I want.  


And have fun decorating them as I please.
