This post was originally supposed to be a knock-off of these place cards that I saw in my parents' Williams-Sonoma catalog ($29 for a set of 4). I now live dangerously close to a dollar store but when I went to look for mini-frames there, they only had them in a chrome finish, and that didn't really accomplish the cute country look I was going for. So I abandoned the frame idea and went for a different approach to these.

|Why Batman? Well, look at the shape and color of the plaque. I couldn't stop the "Na na na na na na na na... BATMAN!" from going through my head.|
And as for a product review on the chalkboard paint... it worked fine. The chalk wiped off cleanly with a damp cloth. It didn't come off too easily with a dry cloth, but that's probably because my base was made of wood and the chalk got caught in the grain. That being said, I'm not sure if I could tell the difference between chalkboard paint and black matte spray paint. I'll try it on another project before making up my mind on this product.
