I wanted to try out this staining paint stencil approach on something, and I needed plant markers. So an idea was born.
It turns out, I didn't really like the effect of white paint, stained with Minwax Special Walnut, on cheap craftstore wood. So I painted the plant names on the plain side, half-covered the white paint work with some chalkboard paint, and moved on with my life. Now I've got some plant markers where one side has permanent names on them and the other side allows for some plant-changing with the chalkboard option. It works.
