So I've recently jumped on the chalkboard paint bandwagon, albiet pretty late. A crafty friend of mine just told me about magnetic chalkboard paint last night, and I'm super bummed that I didn't know about it until after I already bought my paint! Oh well.
So I have this wall right here.....
ANYWAY! I started out by putting a border up out of my reclaimed wood. Whatever, I'm obsessed, I know. So then I noticed that the wall is a bit wavy, so I had to caulk the border onto it. No big.
It was at this point, after just a few strokes of the brush that a little voice in my head said, "You need to stop and sand this first to make it a smooth writing service." But then another voice countered with, "But the sander will wake up the baby, and you don't have that long until he wakes up." So I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best.
I'm planning on sanding it down the next chance I get. Stay tuned!
