Well, I told ya’ll I was wanting to turn an old mirror that has been sitting in our closet for a few years into a chalkboard for Connor. It worked out great and I think he’ll like playing with this and we can also use it to learn letters, shapes, and numbers!
Here is what the mirror looked like before:
I used Martha Stewart chalkboard paint seen here:
The paint went on sort of gloppy….I kind of wish I went with the spray on chalkboard paint instead. Has anyone used that? I’ve also heard if you prime the bottom layer you’re painting with black paint you don’t have to brush on as many coats. It’s not perfect by any means….but I think it turned out good!
Terence was not too crazy about the color, but I think this is one of those things where you can be daring and use a color you normally wouldn’t! So I went for something bright and bold!
