Hey Divas! Yep, I'm back again this week with another project. Don't faint! : )
I told you guys that while I was on a hiatus from my blog, I was still crafting. This chalkboard door was one of the projects I completed during that time. I just love it!
Materials and Cartridges
- Sentimentals Cartridge - "Welcome" image
- Brown Vinyl
- Chalkboard Paint
I got this idea from Pinterest (I'm so addicted!!!) I went to a local store that sells all kinds of old goodies that can be altered. I didn't have a large space for this project so when I found this old narrow door, I knew it was the one. I loved the color and the aging on it appealed to me as well. I wiped it down really good and then left it as it was.
I got a small can of chalkboard paint and painted the inset using the edge as my defining line. I gave it 2 coats so it would be nice and covered. I cut "Welcome" on my Cricut using the Sentimentals cartridge. This was an image, not a font, so it was already welded together. I really love the formal, yet casualness of it.
I realized that I didn't have the long Cricut mat so in order to get my letters the size I wanted, I was going to have to cut them out on 2 mats. So I did. When I adhered the vinyl to the door, I had to lay one part on top of the other in order for the finished product to look like one piece. I think it turned out nice!
