The room redo has taken a lot of time so molding didn’t happen on the doors, but I did get it painted with chalkboard paint. It looks way better and for that I am glad. I don’t know if it will hold up and for that I am really sad. I lightly sanded it. The can didn’t say I had to prime, but I kept thinking I should. I didn’t. I should have.
Today I decided to write on it and take some photos. I wanted to erase and have found a damp towel works best. However, when I erased an area of the door, the paint peeled! I got a sick feeling, but I thought just touch it up and go on. So I did.
I sanded the peeled area and rolled some paint on it. I dried it with a blow dryer and did about 4 coats. I did 3 coats on the doors. I used Valspar chalkboard paint from Lowes because I was there and that is what they had. I also used a foam roller, but it doesn’t seem as smooth as I thought it would be. It’s kind of bumpy.
I used a stencil I made to put this Monster Energy drink logo on his doors. He loves the stuff. I think it is the devil.
The black goes with the gray better than the old brown doors did.
See what I mean? His entry door is still brown. I might have some plans for it, but I am saving it for another day.
I figure if the paint keeps peeling then I will sand them down and start over. It will suck, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. So if you do this don’t be lazy like me and prime. I am also wishing I had used my Deglosser I had in the garage but once again I was too lazy to go get it and use.
I will just hope that I rubbed to hard on paint that is only a few days old and that it won’t peel anymore.
And I will get to keep writing on it and leave my son
nagging messages friendly reminders.
See the mirror to the right? My stepdad made that for me when I was 12. It has been peach, white, brown, navy and now dark gray. I love that mirror.
So cross your fingers for me that there will be no more peeling! I should have pics of the entire room Friday if I get the curtains finished. I bought stitch witchery today. Love that stuff.
