I actually did two chalkboard crafts. I had been planning on painting some old chipped mugs with chalkboard paint, but then I got a free door. And I couldn’t resist painting it.
My parents are having their bathroom redone and one day I went over and this door was sitting in their driveway in a heap of stuff to be taken to the dump. I think the contractor thought I was a little crazy when I asked if I could have the door, but I was happy as I put it in the back of my truck and took it home.
Here it is unpainted and laying on my driveway. I wrapped the doorknob in foil to try to keep paint off of it.
Now it’s hanging out on my back porch and the kids are having fun drawing all over it.
They were also pretty streaky after the first coat.
