Framed it with painters tape...
Repeated for the weekly calendar....
By the time I got done painting it was about 2 a.m. I conditioned the surfaces with a piece of chalk that I rubbed in and left to sit till morning...
When I woke up, I used a dry towel to wipe the surface and my chalkboards are ready to use!
The calendar is going to be a great help in planning my weekly projects/blog posts, meals and social events but the small square, by the door, is a random place to write positive quotes from the Internet and little reminders to myself. Love it.
My other small project was to paint one of my frames that sits on my bookshelf. Home Depot has these paint testers you can buy for $2. I like Glidden paints the best because every color they offer in gallon sizes, you can buy in the mini sizes. There's even a brush attached to the lid, so efficient.
I was going to paint the frame Hermes Orange (the color of the Blogger logo) but decided on this bold fuchsia/pink/orange/red color when I got to the store because it felt a little more feminine.
Last night, my sister (who's 5) and I had a great debate over the color of her nails. I said pink. She said orange. I then mentioned it may be fuchsia because it's inbetween pink and orange. Her response was, "Okay, yeah. My nails are fuchsia. Yup. Fuchsia." and walked away. Lol.
