Mom, can we draw on the bus?

Posted by on

Yes, the enthusiastic answer is yes. Our temporary solution to not beautifully restoring Penny's cabinets for the sake of small kid chalk.  Over the last few weekends I diligently attacked each cabinet with many, many coats of chalkboard paint.  Today was the maiden voyage. 

I took care to *condition* the surface as all the blogs yell adamantly that you must, before any bit of chalk touches the paint.  This has hints of complication and maybe shampoo{?}... but really only entails rubbing chalk all over the surface and then wiping it off with a damp cloth.  Something about allowing better erasing in the future. Whatever the black works, so I made it happen.

Not only does Sadie love drawing {love might be putting it lightly} I'm a fan of the artsy-fartsy myself. Graphic design fills up my Monday-Friday and I can't say no to any outlet for some creativity to ooze from.  

In addition to Sadie becoming the youngest hand-lettering-while-camping guru in existence, we're hoping for some campsite distraction after the fresh air and piles of dirt have worn their welcome.  Maybe a few rounds of Hangman, Tic Tac Toe or Pictionary? Sounds awesome to me.  

Until then...driveway doodling it is.
