So instead of cleaning my house, I decided (on Monday) to turn my fridge into a chalkboard.
Step 1: Take all the magnets off and clean it. I also put painters tape on the parts I didn’t want to paint.
(Pardon the light specks. My kitchen is very narrow and that’s the best angle I could get.)
Step 2: I put some magnetic primer. This stuff takes forever to mix well and takes 3 coats. Now I don’t know if anyone else has a trick about this but I couldn’t get this stuff to wash off so I had to toss the roller and the pan. The magnetic primer is pricey but I still wanted to use my fridge as a magnet and I knew with paint on it, it would never work.
Here it is, all primed and ready. (Thank goodness for painter’s tape!)
Step 3: Was to spray paint the fridge with chalk paint. If I had to do it again, I would have bought paint. I thought spray painting would be easier…yeah right….it was messy and
we M had to mop the floor.
Remove tape and ta-da!!!
Our next project in a little while will be to take that magnetic primer, paint it on the wall, paint over it with regular paint..your wall is magnetized. We are going to do that in M’s room. No more tacks, nails, etc for her posters ;)
