j.o.y.

Three coats of chalkboard paint, with a dry time of 24 hours between each coat.

A friend reminded, "You know to prime the chalkboard with chalk?"

Luckily, I did. So if you do this, rub chalk all over the chalkboard surface, or as the story goes, your first words will always show (so make them good words if you tempt chance).

Finished table:



I thought I'd write 'home' as my first words on this table. But JOY flowed from my fingers instead. Fitting first words, that if they always showed through, I don't think it would be so bad.

I forgot to push the table ends together and lock them in place before I took the picture.
