Tackle it Tuesday: A Welcome Sign
I bought this sign at my local thrift store for $3 about a month ago. I knew I wanted to refinish it into a chalkboard sign I could hang at my front door. I finally had time to tackle it over the weekend.
I taped it off, primed it, and got one of my kids to start painting on the chalkboard paint.
It took a couple coats of chalkboard paint. And when I peeled off the painters tape, most of the border paint came off right along with it. DARN! I really wanted to keep it that red color, because it matches our shutters. Oh well.
I then taped off the middle chalkboard portion and primed the frame. Then I applied a few coats of this green paint because darling husband had it in his shed. Speaking of darling husband....he's been away for 16 days. He comes home tomorrow. What a perfect message to greet him at the door:
He's been sorely missed....but as you can see, we keep ourselves BUSY when he's gone!
