Man, I hope every day this week goes as quickly as this day has gone. I'm ready for a three-day weekend!
I have an update for you this week (kitchen pot rack: finished)! And a couple of new projects - mostly just painting - to (a) get done this week and then (b) blog about.
In the meantime, since most of the rest of this week is going to be about the kitchen (and since I have nothing prepared for today, since I spent the weekend doing nothing, more or less), allow me to show you the chalkboard I made for my pantry door earlier this year:
Whee! It's very simple, and very lightweight, since I wasn't confident about this hollow-core door's ability to hold much weight (especially since there are shelves on the inside of it).
It's simply a piece of Masonite, with the edges sanded smooth, which has been primed and painted white. I taped off the center and used black chalkboard paint (3 coats), leaving a "frame" of white board around the outside edges.
I love having a chalkboard in my kitchen. It looks awesome on the pantry door; and it's been soooo useful. I don't forget stuff at the grocery store anymore, now that I can turn around and add something to the list the second I realize I'm out of it. YAY.
