I had an extra cabinet door hanging around from the add-bookcases-to-the-office project. This door had a very small crack on one side, so the cabinet company gave us a replacement. The crack was only noticeable on one side, so I decided to upcycle this cabinet door into a chalkboard for the basement bathroom.
This was the easiest project.
I already had all of the supplies on hand too - which is always an added bonus! I gave the surface a light sand job (wrote that just for you Cassie). Then I used a sponge applicator to paint the surface for a nice super-smooth-with-zero-brush-marks chalkboard surface. It took 3 coats. When the paint was dry, I screwed the cabinet pull on upside down to hold the chalk and called this project done.
It's a great spot to jot down reminders for my little peeps. Do your kids forget to flush? I feel like all of the bathrooms in our house need to have a rules sign posted: 1. Flush 2. Wash your hands 3. You have to use soap when you wash your hands. 4. Don't leave the lights on. 5. If the roll is empty, replace it! Am I the only mother that feels this way?!
Thanks to the Paint It Challenge I got another project done in the basement bathroom! You gotta love a challenge that motivates you to get things done!
