I gave it a good sanding with my electric sander and then applied wood filler with my fingers into the areas that needed it. After letting the filler dry (about an hour) I sanded the heck out of it until it was nice and smooth.
Here are my supplies.
I primed the entire table with Benjamin Moore Fresh Start Primer because that’s what I had on hand. Then I gave the legs and sides 2 coats of SICO Mint Cocktail green.
After letting that dry I taped off the top.
Here’s the final table top. Unfortunately, it was a very wet day outside today so I couldn’t take it out to get a nice pic. See that dusty haze… and that’s after cleaning it with a damp rag.
OK, OK… so I’m not a calligrapher. lol. I tried my best.
This was my first chalkboard paint project and overall I’m pretty happy with it. I found the spray paint very easy to use and the finish was very nice… until I primed it. I think I’ll clean it off and give it another coat or two. I won’t prime it this time, and I’ll see how it cleans up.
Have you used chalkboard spray paint? If you have any tips for me… please share. I would really appreciate it! I’d really like to try this again.
Thanks so much for visiting and have a great weekend!
