We made 3 "large" chalkboards so I was surprised when Brandin said we needed a BIGger one. But I went along with it...then I saw it completed and it all made sense. The caterers wanted all of the fresh ingredients noted, something that is a trademark of their restaurant, Salt Of The Earth. I'm so glad we made a bigger board for this because it looked great and part of the experience of eating food from Salt.
We started with this gold mirror. U.G.L.Y. I think it looks cheap because the color of the gold is cheap looking and there are no high or low lights. Anyway, that is all about it change.
I started by taping plastic down to cover the mirror so I wouldn't have to scrap paint off later.here.
As for how well the contact paper worked as a chalkboard? It looked terrific.
Be sure to stop in again- lots more wedding tutorials to come.
