I am trying to carve out a little spot in the house for all of my bloggy, crafty, housey endeavors. I really wanted to have a pin board, but I didn't know what I wanted it to look like. Then I saw this idea on Pinterest, and I knew that I wanted that for my space.
So I went to Wally World and looked for some clip boards. I had two choices, clear plastic with the cool clips like in the picture above, or MDF with lame clips. I knew that I wanted to paint them so the clear plastic didn't seem like the right choice, so I got the ones with the lame clips. I will live, or I will redo them.
So I took them out back and laid out newspaper to spray paint on and went to town. Yeah, that spray paint sucked straight in. I hate it when projects make you do it the right way.
So out to the garage, fingers crossed that there will be some primer so that I won't have go back to the Wally. Yes, we had some!! Back out I go. Geez. The primer had one of those caps that require a screw driver to get the lid off....Gah!!
Sometimes a girl has to do what a girl has to do!!
Out back again. I spray the second clipboard with primer. Success!
Once I knew that it would work I layed down the other four clipboards and primed the rest. When the first one was dry I primed it too.
It was getting dark so I left my project for the next day. I hate leaving projects half done don't you?
So the next day I got back to my project. Here is the thing...I live in Kansas (super wind). Spray painting outside, in Fall, in Kansas wind, not really one of my best ideas! Lets just say that my project is..um...organic....mkay!
I did like four coats of off white Krylon gloss spray paint. I didn't tape off the lame clips, I just painted it like the rest. Probably cause I didn' t like the clips and just wanted them to go away.
Anyhoo, Thanks for looking at my Pinterest Challenge project. Feel free to leave me a comment, I am just surfing Pinterest...I've got time!
