Do you remember these cabinet doors I picked up at my Spring Fling?
I purposely chose unfinished doors so that I wouldn’t have to deal with a shiny surface.
I decided to go the easy way and use Spray Chalkboard Paint.
After the first coat, it was a little blotchy.
However, after a couple of coats and TWO cans of spray paint, the doors look great.
I painted some red over the black, and on the back, but they clearly didn’t match. I loved the front, so I then put a wash of black on the back to make it match the front. (the red is just a sample pot of Behr oops from Home Depot)
Cabinet Doors Repurposed
I just can’t get enough of chalkboards. They always sell at shows.
I didn’t realize that the wood grain would show through so much on this one.
But I’m not sure it really matters.
These doors were a little more than I normally pay, but I love the shape of them, and that they can hang either horizontally or vertically.
I have painted the frames on both of these, but I didn’t get pictures before the rain rolled in over the weekend.
I think this one is my favorite. It’s a great size, and I love the added detail around the frame. If you look closely, you’ll see that this one is sitting on a small easel. I made 3 different sizes to help display my chalkboards at my upcoming shows. I’ll show you them, and tell you exactly how to make them later this week.
