I've always wondered if chalkboard paint really worked. So, this weekend, I bought a can and started a new D.I.Y. (Do it yourself) project.
The board that I used was an old chalkboard that my sister was going to throw out. It wasn't a very good chalkboard; I think we bought it from Wal-Mart for about seven bucks. She'd had it for years and it was basically falling apart, not to mention the fact that chalk no longer worked on the board.
The unsightly before featured a ripped board and a very plain trim. Here's the fabulous After shot! I painted the trim yellow...I'd say it was a successful project! :)
