Yes, I did! A couple of things, actually.
This used to be a pretty red-framed mirror until it tragically fell off the wall. For 10 months, it has sat lonely and naked in my garage, waiting for me to find a place that cuts mirror for replacements.
I have seen really cool blackboards created by creative people all over blogland and thought I would give it a try someday. Finally a light bulb went on in my brain to use lonely-naked frame. I set up shop in my work space/kitchen island.
I tell you, this chalk board paint went on really slick and easy. One coat was enough but I was on a high so I added another. I am one who loves to create but feels like I am lacking in the talent and skill department. That’s why this was a perfect project. It took 5 minutes and I wasn’t able to mess it up! If you want instant gratification and to feel really good about yourself; buy a can of chalkboard paint, grab a frame of some sort and 5 minutes and that’s it!
You see a roller in the tray. I didn’t use it. My daughter Lilly painted a wall in her domain at the same time. It turned out awesome and I’ll have pics later. There is still a ton of paint left in the can and I am scanning my home for another piece to convert. This was a banner day! I did a project I always wanted to do and I went to the Rednesday party for the first time :)
Check out the party at It’s a Very Cherry World. It’s a ton of good fun for us red-lovers!
