This week has been crazy getting ready for the Indy Craft Parade tomorrow. We’ve made around 600 tamales in the last couple days. (I say we, Matt actually made them. But doing dishes and tying a pretty bow around the corn husks counts for something right?)
First, I took the glass out of the frame so I wouldn’t have to tape.
I cleaned it off and sprayed it with several light coats of chalkboard paint. This stuff is a tad pricey but it lasts forever! This is the third chalkboard I’ve used it for and there is still some left!
I let it dry for 24 hours and then primed it with chalk. (You can read more about that here.)
Then I popped it back in the frame. So easy! And it’s perfect for my porch!
Have you searched through your garage or attic lately? Maybe you have something you could give new life too with chalkboard paint!
