Y’all know how much I love my chalkboard.
Well, I had to take it off the wall this week.
We are moving and I wanted to patch the holes in the wall behind it.
Why yes, I was hiding holes in the wall from shelves that used to hang there.
Don’t shake your head, you do it too……right?
I wanted to use some dark furniture wax on this baby.
Give it some age. Some character.
Guess what. I can’t find dark wax!
I am too impatient to wait to order it.
What’s a girl to do?!?
That’s right. I got my trusty can of esspresso stain, a foam brush and pieces of an old t-shirt and started working.
At first I wasn’t sure.
See…the part next to the chalkboard on the left doesn’t have stain on it yet.
I kept going.
After all, it’s nothing a can of spray paint can’t change.
The details that stain is bringing out……..sigh…..
I can’t wait to put the football schedule on it and hang it in the new house.
