Okay, here's what you need to do:
1. Link your treasure, it can be anything you love, as long as it's yours and in your home. Please put the page url, not just your blog site address....saves people from having to dig around to find your treasure. (digging for treasure, I made a funny!) LOL
2. Put a link back to my blog (out of the kindness of your heart)
3. I would also appreciate it if you would put my button on your blog (not absolutely necessary if you don't know how, but much appreciated if you do)
4. Have FUN!!
THIS IS MY PANTRY DOOR,
it's kind of plain.....
I've always wanted a fancy little chalkboard menu board for my kitchen and thought this would be the perfect place to put one.......
This is what I did.
I had this frame that I wanted to paint........
and before you choke and die because you think I'm going to paint an antique frame....don't worry, it only looks like wood, it's actually a dense plastic. :-) Doesn't it look real! You can't even tell it's plastic close up, you actually have to feel it to tell. ANYWAY, This is what it looked like before.....
First I primed it with Krylon white primer
Then I gave it three coats of Krylon Bright White paint.
I cut out a 16 x 20 piece of luan (frame inside dimensions)
and gave it three coats of this...
(best invention since sliced bread!) :)
Here's what it looks like all put together.
Don't forget to "prime" your chalkboard before you use it. By priming I mean take a piece of chalk and turn it on it's side and go over the entire surface of the board. (of course you wait till it's totally dry! I waited overnight before I primed mine)
I absolutely LOVE these roses!
I wish I had ten more arrangements just like em'!
Aren't they pretty?!
Again the BEFORE... and the AFTER! Much better don't ya think~!!
Any suggestions on how to store some chalk? I thought of painting and gluing a scrabble letter holder onto the frame somewhere.....any better suggestions than that?
