Another little project I tackled at our hose lately is slapping some chalkboard pain onto the side of a few cupboards in our kitchen. A friend from work let me borrow her leftover paint after I mentioned while chatting about how pricey the stuff is. Thanks Janice!
I don't really know why I need the sides of my cupboards to be chalkboards, but it sounded fun! After taping them off and sanding a bit, I went to work.
It took about two coats...maybe three...I actually don't remember right now! I may have put a third on for good measure, but two is pretty good. I read somewhere online that when it's dry, you should coat the entire surface with the side of a stick of chalk to help it somehow. Haha, I'm not really good at explaining these DIY things.
Here's the finished product! A little spot for our calendar, and a place to write out weekly menu, or whatever the heck we want to jot down!
What's coming up on your menu, or do you plan day by day?
