I know we’ve all seen chalkboard doors in the Blogosphere, but as I’m waiting to find out where we will be moving next, I don’t have too many house projects, so I figured I might as well make some I have sitting around to sell, and in my opinion, everyone needs some chalkboard in their home.
Here’s what I started with.
I saw this old door at the thrift store for a LONG time. I eyed it every time I drove by, but we were in the middle of a lot of house showings at the time, and I don’t have a garage, and knowing that a carport full of junk projects isn’t very appealing to most, I restrained myself and didn’t buy it….Until I couldn’t stand it anymore and my strong-will broke and I brought it home!
…and there it sat, in the back of my husband’s pickup, with bags of clean laundry on top of it tarped (um, because that’s what I do when I have house showings and I don’t have time to put the laundry away.) Just keepin’ it real.
But then we decided we wanted to rent the house, and therefore I did not have to keep the house spotless, which meant pulling out some projects I had left to finish. (and yes, I know this story has too many commas and a ton of run-on sentences, but I really like run-on sentences, especially when I’m telling stories.)
The door was already primed, so I added some paint, wax, chalk paint, and some really fun details.
…and that was it.
A couple hours later, it was sold.
I’m hoping I find more of these somewhere.
Well I hope you all had a great weekend.
I spent part of mine working on some other projects to sell. Gotta keep myself busy ya know.
