Hi everyone! Last summer I picked up a bulletin board/chalkboard combo that seemed pretty handy, but it screamed 1970’s. Yeah, it needed a makeover–bad. I tend to go pretty conservative with most paint projects because items are easier to sell when they’re in neutral, antique whites, taupes, and grays. This project seemed to call for antique white chalk paint with some distressing and clear, rather than dark wax. You’ll have to let me know what you think.
Whoever’s home it ends up in, I think it will be very handy.
See what I mean about the terrible 70’s finish? Medium [bleh] brown with darkened edges/corners.
But it’s nothing a little homemade antique white chalk paint couldn’t handle.
Followed by some distressing.
And one coat of clear wax.
And some buffing.
Boom, she’s done!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
