Today I wanted to share a quick project that I needed for a display piece in my booth. Super easy and functional! First the HUNT....gather and load....Yep...loaded all by myself! I can ALWAYS count on help with the loading at Lowe's or Home Depot but at thrift store....not so much...they just say "good luck!"
Getting large pieces into your vehicle can sometimes be a challenge...especially when it's already full of treasures! You have to be creative sometimes and your kids have to duck down all the way home!!
Ok...to start I had to decide whether I wanted to just paint over the whole thing or take a layer or two off. I notice some red popping thru so I put a good slathering of Strypeeze on it and let her do her thing. It was so random where the white paint came off...just as I suspected some red came thru....wahoo...then it started to randomly crackle. Way cool! I sure wish you could see it up close.
What color do I pick? With that Red showing thru I picked MMS milk paint Flo Blue!
I used Rust-Oleum Chalk Board latex paint for the inside panels. This stuff has to be shaken up very well.
Yep, it needs 2 coats! Then to prime for chalk you have to let it cure for 3 days then take a piece of chalk on it's side and cover the entire chalk board piece then wipe clean with a damp cloth then repeat.
Voila...there you have it! All finished and in it's home!
You all have a great day and Thanks for stopping by and visiting!
