Chalk it up!

I've been enjoying my newly painted cabinets.
So much that I had to paint them again... Well, only part of them.



I painted a chalkboard on one of the doors.



In order to get a clean edge I taped and then painted some of the background paint color over the edge of the tape. That way when you peel it off you have a nice clean line.

Follow the instructions on your paint can.
First, I primed the door.


Second, I brushed all the paint on in the same direction.


Third, I brushed it on in the opposite direction.


Peel off the tape while the paint is still wet. If you wait until it's dry it will peel unevenly. 


Then go to town coloring!

That's the fun part.

Thanks,
