my new best friend!
Krylon Chalk Board Paint! I've wanting a great black board for my Kitchen, one like you see in Restuarants or in decorating mags. The ones I've priced went for $35.00 and up. No way I'm too cheap! Anyway cleaning out the attic last weekend I found an old mirror (not antique old-just well used old) from Ames with a nice oak frame. Its about 20X24 inches. Anyway I took the mirror out and used three coats of the Krylon on the reverse side (it was slate like to begin with). Spruced up the frame with English scratch cover and polish for dark, and paste waxed it. Replaced the chalkboard and put new hanging hardware and PRESTO! It looks great and all for about $2.00 and my sweat equity!
Then of course I couldnt stop. Found and old kids table in the same treasure trove of an attic. Spruced up the legs with English again (Dont you love that stuff??!!) Painted the top with the chalkboard paint and my grandson is now enjoying his new "drawing" table!
What else can I paint??!!
