2 Lives

Remember this mirror I posted about a few weeks ago?  I decided that it didn't want to be a mirror anymore.  When it grew up it wanted to be a chalkboard.
Once again...who lets their kids run wild with stickers?!?!?!?!

I primed the whole thing (mirror included).  I then spray painted the wood parts with Krylon's "Celery" spray paint. 

Krylon Celery Spray Paint 5 Ball Decorator Aerosol Paint

(I always use paper grocery bags when I need to cover an area...make do with what you have!)

Then I taped off where I spray painted and brush painted on some chalkboard paint.  This stuff is so cool!  It was my first time to the rodeo with it.

So I've learned the hard way to not cheap out when it comes to painters tape.  The kind I used in this project was from the dollar store, and well, it wasn't even worth that.  My paint bled underneth it and I had to go back and touch up in quite a few places.  Can we say pain in the rear?!

To the booth at The Depot it goes!!!
