…I’ve been absolutely HORRIBLE about blogging lately.
No really, I am.
And I have no good excuse either – we’ve been busy but what else is new.
But I’m back!
And I’m ready to share some projects!
Remember the kitchen?
Well…a while back Mike went out of town, and I got a little bored. I wouldn’t say he was thrilled when he got home, but, because he’s such a fabulous husband, he didn’t make me change it back.
I haven’t let the kids draw on it yet – I’m just loving the blankness that is the clean chalkboard wall. Yes I did it. But I did take into account all the warnings. To avoid the dust, I’m planning on only using chalkboard markers.
When I break down and finally let the kids draw on it, that is.
Not that you would ever want to do a chalkboard wall, but iffin you did, here’s how I did it:
- first I taped with frog tape (the green gap at the top will be covered by crown moulding…eventually)
- then I did 3 coats of magnetic primer (from lowes)
- followed by 2 coats of chalkboard paint (also from lowes)
easy peasy lemon squeezey!
So do you like it or hate it – I’m pretty sure its gotta be one or the other?
