Before I show you the BIG BIG CHALKBOARD let me tell you how it all came about.
For about a year now I have been wanting to make a chalkboard but just never got around to it. Then one day I found the perfect frame. It was a mirror from an old dresser, probably from the 1940s. I easily transformed the frame. First I primed it, then painted it, then color washed it and finally I distressed it. My husband cut a piece of masonite that we purchased at Home Depot. Then came the hard part. I had never painted a chalkboard and wasn't quite sure how to go about it. So I called my friend Paula. She has painted chalkboards before so I wanted to get her expert advice. She recommended I use Rustoleum chalkboard paint and apply at least 3 coats, letting each coat dry overnight. She says she likes to apply it with a foam brush. Then you should wait about a week before you use it. So this is what I did and this is how it turned out.
After I show you mine I will show you the Big Big one she had just purchased.
Okay. Enough about me. Let me show you the BIG BIG CHALKBOARD.
Paula's plan was to turn it into a chalkboard.
