While Westin was gone last week I decided to paint the end of our kitchen cabinets with chalkboard paint. I have visions of him sitting happily here and drawing while I cook dinner. It hasn't happened yet and probably never will. :) In fact, he hasn't even noticed it yet! Ha!
I just taped it off and gave it a few coats.
Some of you asked about chalk vs. chalk pen. It is really nice to write with a chalk pen but I cannot get it to erase. Am I the only one with this problem?? I have to totally re-paint the chalkboard if I use a pen. Any tips with this? I have just gone back to regular chalk. I really prefer the look of plain ole chalk to the pen anyways.
Y'all are so funny asking about my handwriting. My actual script is just all uppercase letters. This is how I write every day. To spice it up a little I might add some cursive. Ha! I really do not have any tips about this other than just play around with it until you get what you like. Also, you can google fun fonts and try to copy them. Try writing in all caps if you normally don't or try writing in all lowercase if you normally always write in cursive. I just like experimenting.
Also, I've always used the chalk paint that comes in a can. I've never tried the spray paint although I know a lot of people like that. I mostly do all my projects inside so spray paint would not be good for that.
Please add any thoughts or tips on chalkboard paint in the comments. And if you have a question I will answer it in the comments so check back.
