Obviously I have not gotten too terribly bored with chalkboards because here come two more.
First talk a friend into selling you her pantry doors.
First thought was to save the lovely avocado and gold decals.
Quickly changed my mind while envisioning painting chalkboard paint around oddly shaped decals.
Then there was the brown packing tape - the scourge of my existence when painting pieces.
First remove the top layer of clear.
Generous spritz of Lift Off and let it sit a spell.
Then carefully scrape without gouging.
The decals refused to budge so I lightly sanded them and painted over them.
A still life:
A Girl, Her Brush, and Valspar Chalkboard Paint.
Since chalkboard paint is ultra-matte, there is no need for priming.
Four coats later, it was time to condition.
While waiting for paint to dry, I was cleaning the pool and working on some other paint projects.
No, the pool should not be green.
No algae - just a boatload of pollen.
Soaked the retro atomic chrome handles in ammonia for about an hour.
Came out sparkling.
I was much too tired to be creative with chalk artwork.
I could not even think of a balanced meal!
One of the other projects was another chalkboard.
On a Blitz pan for an auto shop.
Man cave style!
I have reduced the number of items I will be taking because of the storms moving in.
There is a chance we may stay home.
I am very disappointed.
We are watching the skies carefully.
I need clear skies from 7AM to 4PM on Saturday.
