Chalkboard wine glasses

I cannot drink wine from a plastic cup, I just can’t. So I needed to get extra wine glasses for our holiday dinner at the cottage, where I have only 4 wine glasses! Again, the various thrift stores yielded a nice mismatch of shapes and sizes. I saw chalboard-dipped glasses on Pinterest but my black paint was old and totally separated. I did have tiny jars of colored chalkboard paint (used to sell them at my store, craft stores carry them) so I picked a light yellow/green and brushed it onto the bottom of the glasses. I didn’t dip for 2 reasons: not enough paint to get high enough on the stem and I didn’t want paint on the bottom, which could rub off on the furniture.
The paint can’t go in the dishwasher but we usually hand wash glasses anyhow. I picked out red chalk for people to scribble with, I’ll post pics after the party(ies)
