Thoughtful Shopping: Small Ticket Items Worth Splurging On
|1/18/13 1:37 PM|
Mine is my home office/3rd bedroom. I had shelves built instead of using Billy ones from Ikea, and they needed to be painted. Ugh. Four days and (yes, I neglected to use primer) 4 coats of semi-gloss white later, they're STILL not done and I have actual job-related work to do, so it occurs to me that making time to get to these projects is going to be an issue this January. I messed up the removable shelves by painting them while they were lying on a plastic tarp; now they need to be lightly sanded and repainted. And my friendly painter told me that semi-gloss should be dried at least 36 hours, otherwise anything you set down on it and pick up again will pull up patches of paint. He's right.

Chalkboard paint needs no sanding or priming, apparently, and it comes in a variety of delicious colors. A shopowner in my town uses it for all kinds of furniture, outdoor, metal, wood, you name it. It dries matte, so varnish is required for a glossier finish, but that varnish may take care of sagekitten85's question...
