First Chalkboard Ever!

Posted on: November 15, 2010

I am super excited to share with you my first chalkboard experience. After a Saturday long affair of shopping at various goodwills and antique stores. I scored some fun finds. Including a bird, a end table (finally, bless the freaking stars) and some other ones soon to come that I promise to post about. But earlier in the week I scored a gorgeous mirror all etched in gold. It was also the size I was looking for. Plus it was only $6! Which made my wallet happy. I even found a smaller size one that I will keep as a mirror ( I think)

I taped the mirror up with my trusty painters tape starting on the mirror size first. Then I pulled out my rusto. spray paint in Heirloom White(which I just started using and can I say I am in loove!) The gold wasn’t as hard to cover as my other mirror so it needed only 2 good coats.

Also pictured is the cute smaller mirror I found for $2! Once it dried, I peeled off my painters tape and then covered the frame. I used my sorry I forgot the brand of the chalkboard spray paint but I then sprayed the mirror. Once finished I covered the whole thing in chalk. Then this morning as I headed out to work, I wiped it clean and here is my finished result. What Cha think?

Not the greatest picture (but give me a break I was heading out the door to work, literally pre pic) However I looove it and can’t wait to use it. I will be also doing my first link up at Craft-O-Maniac!
