Do you ever take on one project and then realise that in order to complete it, about a million other little projects need completing?
Our little – knocking down a major load-bearing wall between the kitchen and dining room – project falls exactly into that category.
One of the last things in need of sorting is the hole behind our kitchen units where the wall used to be.
Well, we couldn’t leave it like that, could we?! Always ones for a quick and easy solution, we decided to just have an MDF board cut to size and screw it to the backs of the units. It all seemed simple enough, except that the board didn’t quite fit.
On the plus side, it was an excuse for us to get out one of our power tools. And after a quick trim, sand and screw, it fitted perfectly.
By now, I’m sure you’ve all guessed that we didn’t just leave it like that…well, of course not! We’ve painted it with blackboard paint.
Having done a bit of research, we found out that it’s best to prime your chalkboard before drawing your design onto it, otherwise your very first drawing could end up rather more permanent that you’d probably want.
And here’s our first little, quick design.
Do you have a blackboard in your home? Do you have any suggestions for our next chalkboard drawing?
