Amir was commenting how we needed something to write down things we should remember when going through the door, so my mind immediately went to blackboard paint and frames. It turned out quite nicely if I may say so myself!
I made one for myself as well, to have in my craft room
Partially because I wanted to prove that it was a better look for our hallway with this style frame, but in the end Amir’s looked so good I didn’t even argue the point.
- This paint is an environment hazard. Washing brushes properly is a new thing to learn.
- I slabbed on a bunch of magnet paint first, but I must either not have stirred it well enough first, or I did too few coats, or SOMETHING, because our weaker magnets don’t even CONSIDER sticking to it.
- I should really sand them down, because the surface is so gnarly from my heavy paint brushes that they’re a pain to wipe off.
Also you may notice the hole at the top of the top frame. That’s how the frame came, honestly. I just painted straight on the backing (after removing it from the frame of course – and the glass is in my room waiting for other use). And that one happened to have a corner in that style. Probably to make it easier to pick up?
