Last month I found a wooden pig at the thrift store that had been painted white and black and had dried moss and straw flowers hot glued to it. Someone had once loved it, but it was sad and worn out.
So of course I bought it.
I had to use a screw driver and some elbow grease to scrape the hot glued mess off, then I sanded it a little and painted it with homemade chalk paint.
I dissolved a couple tablespoons of un-sanded grout in water, then mixed some of that into a cup or so of flat black paint in another container until I liked the consistency. For chalkboards I find foam brushes leave a nice smooth finish.
I don't actually know if conditioning the chalkboard is necessary, but I read it somewhere, so I did it. That's just covering the entire surface with chalk
and then wiping it all off again.
My piggy blackboard travels around the house as needed.
First he wished everyone a Happy 4th of July on the front porch.
And now he's announcing the menu in the kitchen.
Somewhere along the line "it" became a "he."
He's sort-of part of the family now.
I mean, he talks to us.
Thanks for stopping by to see my piggy blackboard, and
I hope you have a great day!
