We are fortunate to live in Colorado with so many craft breweries nearby and my husband and I often go to tasting rooms for a flight of their latest brews. He has now gotten to the point that he usually has 3-4 beers brewed and ready at a time and I thought he may enjoy a way to let family and friends taste his batches. I followed the original link's idea for chalkboard paint as a quick and easy way to label the different and ever changing beers. Here are the steps I took to create these beer paddle flights.
1. I had my neighbor create the paddles for me. He is a woodworker and I gave him the picture from the original link and in about 15 minutes he had these made for me...and for free!!! THANK YOU :) Now, I realize most people don't live next door to such sweet woodworkers but the original link does reference a website you can purchase these from too.
2. Next I sanded the paddles and sprayed them with a couple coats of spray paint. I used a light gray paint I had leftover from a nursery project. So again this part was free for me...woohoo!
Overall I am very pleased with how they turned out and I hope he doesn't read this post until after Father's Day so that it will be a surprise :)
