We’ve been searching high and low for chalkboard paint but no luck in finding it.
Well, when you can’t find the ready made one, turn to the internet and search for DIY tutorial. Always work for me as I found custom chalkboard paint tutorial from Martha Stewart and A Beautiful Mess.
So we bought unsanded grout and acrylic paint – dark green color instead of black. Mixed and tested on the wooden box (DIY by the husband). After the paint dried, we rubbed the white chalk on the surface and wiped it off lightly.
Finding the chalk itself was another pain in the a*s. Stationery shops didn’t even sell chalk but marker. We bought the second-hand chalks from a sundry shop.
I tried to write on the board and guess what, it works! *so happy* There’ll be more home project involving chalkboard in the future.
Aside from that, the husband also made triangle pennant and photo props on stick (moustache, lips, cute glasses, tie). He’s not only good in technical stuff like tinker with delphi oxygen sensor but also handmade stuff. Can tell I’m a proud wife.
All these were the preparation for our
engagement wedding anniversary photoshoot. Yeap, there I say it.
The photoshoot happened on last Thursday, imagine paddy field + hot scorching sun + makeup + dress = lots of sweat. I hope the photographer didn’t zoom too close.
We’ll get to see the result on early June. Finger crossed the photos will be awesome as we have put so much effort in it.
