A Place to Write Notes

Good Morning everyone.  It's Thursday once again and I am looking forward to going to the annual Springfield Antique and Flea Market being held this weekend in Ohio.  It's so much fun and always so much to look at and to drool over.  Lots of treasures.  Hope we have a good weekend, weather wise and I know it will be fun with my 3 daughters.  Anyways, here is my latest project.  It is this cute little desk that was already painted green and kinda of antiqued.  I wanted a little different look for this cute desk.  Here is my before picture:

I wanted to change up the hardware and I was thinking of doing something with chalkboard paint.  Actually my daughter Jackie suggested painting some of the desk with that paint.



So I took off all the hardware and starting painting all the tops of the desk and the 2 bottoms drawers with Kilz paint.  I wanted the chalkboard paint to stick to the desk, so I prepped the tops and the drawers with the Kilz.  Than I painted black chalkboard paint where I wanted to and sprayed the hardware with a hammered silver spray paint. 

I put the desk all back together and this is what it turned out like.



And here is what my hardware turned out like after I sprayed painted them.

A few of my doodles.


And my little green chalkboard desk.







So what do you think?  Better or worse?  Until next time, Dianne........................
