Bacon Makes Everything Better
I have been on a Krylon kick lately. I bought that Fusion paint for my plastic Adirondack chair and foot stool. Now, I felt it was time to try the chalkboard spray paint. I don't know what took me so long! I am one of those people who likes to leave reminders and notes all over the place for me and my family. I had a dry-erase board in my craft room. I don't know if it was ever pictured in the background on this blog, but it was not working very well. I purchased it very inexpensively at Walmart. It was for a high school kid's locker and it was a dark royal blue. I thought it would look nice in my blue craft room. The black dry erase marker didn't show up at all on it. It was already screwed to the wall and I wasn't sure how to fix it.
Well, with just a gentle sandpapering for tooth, it was sprayed with the chalkboard paint. Now it is functional. I love that it also retained the magnetic quality it had as a dry-erase board. Now, just like the fusion paint, I am searching for something else to make into a chalkboard! I do have a Halloween project in mind I saw on a very crafty blog-I will show you later.
Our weather here in the Northeast is becoming a little more fall-like. The evenings have been cooler which makes sleeping comfortable. It was wonderful to have my husband remove all the window AC units. I love having the windows open. The house just feels fresher, not so stale.
My thoughts today are going back 10 years, as I am sure many of you are doing the same. I have no words that could adequately express my sorrow for those who lost a loved one that day. I guess I can only continue to hope we see no more such horrific acts. Take care. Nancy
