Farts and Crafts time!
I was given this cupboard three years ago. My intent at that time was to do something fun with it and transform it into something not so drab.
Here is what it looked like this morning, and the three years prior to that.
A poorly lit photo, but I think you get the idea. It's white and a bit all over blah. A trip to the Home Depot OOPS paint shelf, and this cupboard found a fun new color to sport. And for only fifty cents!
Fifty cents! How about that? Seriously, the OOPS shelf at Home Depot is an awesome place to stop off at. If you're not married to a certain color for your project OOPS paint might be just what you're looking for. Today's selection was pretty decent. I love a good deal so today's find was a match made in Home Depot heaven.
Sadly I cannot call this my fifty cent project because I didn't stop there. I am usually always the last to learn about a cool trend. I am not very hip with it, so forgive me when I admit that I just recently learned about chalkboard paint. I know, I know. It's been all over the blog scene for quite some time. Well la dee frickin' da. I have finally arrived! Enter chalkboard paint into my life. PS-I am quite smitten. For an additional $12.98 I was able to give my sad cupboard one more happy twist.
Rust-Oleum chalkboard paint definitely has a different texture than most paints, and at first I thought it wasn't working. Turns out I just needed a lot of coats. As in four coats. It also works best if it is rolled on with a sponge roller.
I have to wait a couple days before I can chalk it up, but in the mean time here is the final product. I am pretty happy with it. Not too bad for only spending $13.48.
