Hi again.....I have another little project today to share. Its another quick and easy one.
I revamped a frame I purchased into a Kitchen Chalkboard. I didnt do anything fancy this time,just painted and sealed it, and painted in a chalk board as a gift to My SIL.
Wow...is this stuff fun! I used it today as it was intended, as a sealer. It toughens up and protects the surface it is applied to, against water, scrapes and scratches. It added a lovely shine to the frame and it dries fairly quickly.
Here is the finished project.
It started out as a brown wooden frame with glass. I pulled the entire frame apart and sanded the glossy varnished surface back to take the paint better. Then I went over it with a wash of white acrylic paint. I distressed the corners slichtly once dry with some distress ink, just to age it a little.
Then I got out my Helmar Antique Acrylic Sealer.
I gave the whole frame a coat and let it dry, and then coated it again.
This gave a lovely sheen which made the finish look much more professional, with a very light yellowing colour to enhance the country feel of the project.
I Painted the original board insert with black chalkboard paint, sanded it and painted it again approx. 3 times, and once it had all dried I popped it all back together again, minus the glass of course, and the project was complete.
Now I need one for my own kitchen!
Thanks for stopping in today!
