At the local home improvement center buying chalkboard paint. TOM has been cleaning and organizing the garage and he discovered 2 sheets of plywood...just what I needed for a storage/organizer in my 'studio' and I thought it would be cool to paint the top with chalk board paint.
I almost got off task when I saw the magnetic primer, because I also wanted a chalkboard in the kitchen and how cool would that be to also be magnetic? TOM was against the magnetic primer; not a fan of magnets. So we compromised and I had the chalkboard paint tinted 'fresco red'. The base of the shelf will be a gray that we had left over from painting the living room.
