30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 8
Today I am thankful for my alone time.
Yesterday didn't go so well for me, so today I am thankful for being at home, getting chores done, spending some time with the doggie, starting, and finishing some crafts.
One of the DIY (do it yourself) crafts I have done is a chalkboard.
So here's a frame I got from TJ Maxx (they also have some cool ones at Hobby Lobby):
|I liked it because it had a silverish frame with grapes on it...I have a few wine themed items in the house.|
|Yesterday I took the glass, primed it (I think it took 3-4 coats) and then painted it with a chalkboard paint (2 coats).|
Then I let it dry.
|Then I took a piece of chalk and wiped it all over the board.|
|Then you take a cloth, and wipe off.|
I thought this was a novel idea after reading it on a blog, but they have it on the back of the spray paint can, too.
Inspiration came from another blog, but I can't for the life of me what blog it was. It was easy enough to remember, so I didn't have to reference back to it...But if you do an internet search you can find lots of inspiration, too!
