This past week I’ve been working on turning an ugly old, huge frame into a magnetic chalkboard for my kitchen hutch.
I don’t have a before photo, I was too busy changing it to stop and take a photo of the ugly. But it was a gold frame that I spray painted this burnt orange, only one coat. I liked how the gold came through and it was rustic looking, which I love.
The magnet paint didn’t work very well, I followed the directions of 3 coats and then waited the alloted time to apply the chalk board paint, which I followed it’s directions to the T as well, I haven’t tried using any chalk on it yet but I’m assuming that it’ll work. I can try the magnet application all over on the other side of the board I used … or I can forgoe that idea entirely and go for a cork board. Or just stick with the chalk board.
I think I’m leaning towards trying for the magnet side of things, it’s much easier for me to quick slap something on this thing with a magnet than it will be for me to take the time and write something down.
We’ll see. What’s your vote?
Part of my life list is to make 1,000 lovely things, this counts 🙂
