This project has been in the works for a while (thanks to too much hospital time the past week!).
It started with an old medicine cabinet door I found at a junk sale a couple of weeks ago ($12) .... and an empty spot on my laundry room wall, just begging for something old.
|("x" marks the spot!)|
LOVED the old glass knob, too!
Hitting things with hammers is fun.
Ever tried it....?
Next, I flipped the door over and spray primed and spray painted the whole thing (I used an etching primer because I was spray painting over a mirror, too), and then painted the inset mirror part with chalkboard paint.
|(tin foil worked GREAT to cover the glass knob while spray painting!:)~|
And here it is, hanging on that bare wall in my laundry room:
|Happy in it's new home! :-)|
Perfect spot for leaving reminders and messages .... and hanging our keys!
I had to bite the bullet and face my chalk-o-phobia to use some "real" chalk (as opposed to my usual chalk ink markers!) so that I could use that sweet color of turquoise chalk ...... which, of course, matches my Ladder Laundry Rack!
(I've spray painted it again since I originally posted it .... it's a little softer shade of turquoise now than the original color, shown in original post HERE.)
I'll show you some other fun stuff in my laundry room soon ....
