I have a confession to make.
When it comes to crafty endeavors, I have a lot of luck. I figure out how things are made, figure out how I want to do it, and go to town. I do my research before tackling a project, especially if it's something I've never done before. I take into account tutorials and tips that I've seen others use and everything generally turns out really well.
So when I decided to use chalkboard paint on something, I thought that I'd get finished with the project and everyone could bask in my awesomeness and I'd be super happy.
But when it was dry and I tried using chalk on the surface, something terrible happened.
It scraped off!!!
Amazing Boyfriend thinks that it happened because I didn't prep my surface properly before I painted, and he's probably right. So now the plan is to sand it down and start again.
I hate failing, especially epically, but on the positive side, I did learn something. And I know what I did wrong so I won't make the same mistake a second time.
I will finish this project and it will be awesome.
