|the finished blackboard ... perfect ;)|
steve went down to the local hardware store and helped me get the right paint, who knew their were choices ... and while i have pinned many "make your own blackboard paint" i am not that confident yet, especially with a project this size!
|what we used :)|
|ready to paint!|
steve and i decided we wouldn't be able to make a perfect square ... what that really means is steve is a perfectionist and as he was helping me (the not so perfect) we decided it was better for our marriage to go for something that required a little less precision! so we went the free styler way ... yeah baby!
|blackboard paint is so effective and so instant!|
|we literally rolled out a pattern for the wall!|
outcome: NEW ADDICTION for BOTH of us ... immediately after we had finished steve said to me "don't be surprised if you see blackboard paint on a whole lot of things in the future" ... now i know why so many things had been transformed into blackboards on pinterest! no other way of describing it, it really is totally awesome and once you start, well ... just warning you :)
my thanks goes to all those lovely fellow addicts that have painted with chalkboard paint and then blogged about it. all that wonderful inspiration ended up on pinterest and now i am completely obsessed with it myself!
