By the time February arrives, I'm usually anxious to do something - anything! I'm tired of being cooped up in the house and itching to get my fingers in the dirt, but of course I can't until the snow is gone. And so, my house bears the brunt of my pent-up energy. Nothing is safe. I've gone through the children's rooms , the reloading room, the bathroom and the kitchen. I've cleaned under the beds, in the cupboards and behind the stoves. And still I'm a bundle of energy looking for another project!
The cupboards, well, they looked so plain. And my children asked what was for dinner - again. And there was that one verse I wanted to memorize - it would be nice if I could see it every day. What to do? Well, paint the cupboard doors with chalkboard paint of course!
Really, the job was pretty easy. I scrubbed the doors with Whistle, an industrial cleaner Sir Knight brought home (I love it! - it works on everything) and taped them up to paint. After cleaning and taping, I spray painted them with chalkboard paint. I sprayed the doors twice, allowing the paint to dry in-between coats and then I let them dry overnight.
That was it!!! My cupboards had a face life and I had a place to keep the menu for the week and a new Bible verse every week as well.
It's fun, and fresh, and now I'm thinking of all kinds of home improvement projects that I can't wait to get my hands on!
And I truly can't wait for spring!!!
