Never let your twenty seven year old boyfriend near your projects, ever. Especially if they think it’s so neat and have to touch it. Or in my case, write on it with chalk before I’ve done enough coats. I tried to put one more coat over but I could still see his “Lucy and Lily suck” through it (he was being funny, I promise; he doesn't really think our lovely mutts suck). I’m sure I could’ve done more coats but I have little patience. So, I just trudged on the best I could with my simple craft.
Here’s the finished project.
And a few in progresses.
Wooden picture frame (from Michaels): $1
Chalkboard paint (on hand; I get mine at Lowes for $5)
Soap rose petals (from Dollar Tree): $0.50 (can someone please say Vday clearance?)
Glue gun (on hand)
Chalk (on hand)
TOTAL: $2-7 (thank goodness!)
