In my last post I discussed different options I was debating for my closet doors. Well I decided to go ahead and try the cheapest option first, chalkboard paint! Here is what I did.
First I took the doors off the hinges and laid them outside (since I knew I would be working with some pretty stinky stuff). Then I chose some leftover paint I had laying around and painted a rough boarder that I would be taping off.
I used a Costco mailer to help me keep my tape even all the way around.
Here is what it looked like when I was done. I used Frogger Tape from Home Depot which actually did pretty well with bleeding.
Then I painted 3 coats of this stuff and took my tape off about 30 minutes after I finished my last coat.
I forgot to snap a before picture in the office, but here is what they look like in the spare bedroom.
Here is the after! I like them a whole lot better than what it previously was, but I’m not sure I’m completely in love with how they go in the room. I may end up switching these up again in the near future, but for now it acts as an awesome message center.
