I've recently done some painting in my dining room. One of the changes that I made was to change an ugly brown door to the upstairs into a chalkboard door. Below is a "before" picture of the door.
I used Valspar chalkboard paint that I purchased at Lowes. I first put multiple coats of Rustoleum Magnetic Paint as a base. I never could get the magnetic paint to really work - after about 4 coats it would hold a very light magnet, but not a piece of paper under the magnet. It also left a very rough surface for the chalkboard paint. This week I added several more coats of the magnetic paint and sanded it smooth, but most magnets still aren't sticking. Then I covered it with another coat of chalkboard paint. The chalkboard paint works great, so my advice is to skip the magnetic paint!
Anyone who knows me knows I love all things Apple, so this was my first drawing!
Today I made this inspirational message. It's not perfect, but I love it!
I love having the challenge of coming up with ideas that will inspire and encourage me.
