Yesterday I completed my 6th DIY project of the year, meeting the goal I set for this year in my New Year's Resolutions. And it's only June! I should have set a higher goal, but I'm just happy I met it. And I even have another craft in the wings, halfway completed too! It has been a crafty summer :-)About a week ago, I bought some supplies while out wedding shopping with Mom and Julie. I found this big, blue, wooden frame-type thing at Goodwill, and then bought some chalkboard spray paint at Michael's and some white spray paint at Flower Factory. And the idea for my chalkboard project was born.
The project couldn't have been simpler. I just spray-painted the frame white, then a few days later I taped off the white part when it was totally dry, and spray-painted the inside with chalkboard paint. (I tried to use foam core board for the inside, but it was too thick to fit inside the frame. But that's why it's in the picture).
I bought enough chalk to last me a lifetime at IKEA yesterday, and used it to turn my chalkboard into a menu to hang in my kitchen. I really like the finished product, and I think the frame looks soooo much better in white rather than blue!
Next project in the works? A coffee filter wreath. I think it will look cute in our living room!
