Hey There! I’m late posting today. We are in week 2 of being sick in my family. Last week it was the boy, and now it’s the princess and I. We’ve been hit hard with a nasty flu-ish cold. Because I haven’t been able to leave the house much, a handmade Valentine’s sentiment is my best bet this year.
Plus after 14 years of marriage, Mr. K deserves something special!
Supplies: I picked up the globe at my favorite thrift store. The Krylon chalkboard paint and chalk ink pens are from Michael’s. I also used a screwdriver and some masking tape.
I used a screwdriver to seperate the globe and the stand.
It came right apart.
Since I knew I was spray painting, I covered the metal past with masking tape to protect it.
I did the painting part in the garage.
I tried doing sweeping motions about 10-12 inches from the surface, leaving plenty of drying time between coats.
The spray paint left a nice glossy finish.
After the paint dried, I tried to find the “flattest” part of the globe to write on (turns out the continents were raised a bit).
I wrote “You are my world” and randomly drew hearts all over.
The drawing was the fun part.
If you see my husband… shhh don’t tell him about his surpise!
