Just a little craft.
Recently, Brooke at pureandnoble posted about painting clipboards with chalkboard paint.
They say imitation is the finest form of flattery and Brooke is a pretty rad person so I ordered a few mini clipboards & paint from my friendly local hardware store (run by family-Hi Ed!)
I will admit right off the bat that I used the wrong kind of paint brush.
Maybe a mini roller would have worked better...for a smoother finish.
Ah, live and learn...next time.
After the paint dried (after 2 coats and a little sanding between coats), I patiently waited 3 days to "prep" the chalkboards...which basically means rub chalk all over and then wipe clean.
The perfect mini chalkboard for little reminders, chore lists or love notes.
Now all I need is to locate chalk in this house...the backyard chalk has been used as pellets or bullets or both and now is scattered thither and yon.
