While it was cute, it would definitely not go with my kitchen! So I wiped it down and disassembled it like so:
Next I primed:
Then spray painted with Krylon’s Brushed Metallic Carmel Latte, yes it looks as good as it sounds!
Now this next part I do not have pictures of however it was pretty simple. I took the chalk board to my craft room and found a scrapbook paper that I felt fit the bill. I used spray adhesive to attach the paper. Then using my cricut I cut the words “What’s Cookin?” I applied a layer of modge podge to the scrapbook paper and then positioned my words over it. Once that dried I added an additional layer of modge podge to seal it! To give this a finished look I cut a piece of ribbon and hot glued it on overlapping the paper and the chalkboard. Then with the cricut using a different font I cut out initials for each day of the week and I inked around the edges. I ran these initials through my xyron mini sticker maker and slapped them bad boys on my board. I snipped 7 pieces of black ribbon, sealed the ends and tied them in a knot, then put them on using glue dots. This was my outcome!
I must admit this was just what I needed and now rather than being asked 50 million times what is for dinner they can see, not that it will make a difference they probably still won’t like it! I’m loving it and it turned out even better than what I had imagined it would!
