We bought nice pre-finished exterior doors for our house but in the buying of them we totally forgot about the door in between the house and the garage. So when it was time to put one in Ken told our contractor to just buy an in stock door to put in. It doesn't match the other doors and it was only primed so I thought it would be fun to turn it into a chalkboard.
I bought a quart of chalkboard paint at Menards for around $10. I put two coats on the door and it used around 1/2 of it. It didn't cover very well with the first coat but with 2 coats it did great.
After painting it I had to let it sit for 3 days before using it. That was sad because I did it just before the kids arrived home and I was hoping to put a welcome home message on it.
Have you ever used chalkboard paint? What projects have you done with it - or think would be fun to do?
