Chalkboard Paint Saves The Day

Well, it didn't actually save the day.
It did however save the sale!

I have had this old desk for sale at
for months!
 And, for a really great price!
But, it just wouldn't sell.

So, I decided I'd take it home.
Maybe I'd paint it really colorful...
or paint a whimsical design on it.

But, then I thought,
 "who doesn't love chalkboard paint?"

I went the easy route,
not only using chalkboard paint,
but also just painting the desk part & the slats.
And, guess what?
It sold!
And it sold quickly!

Ah...chalkboard paint...
Gotta love it (other people do apparently)!

Pin It


  1. Very creative!! I'm sure some child will have hours of fun with it...

  2. Love it!!!
    What a great idea - I did that to an adults desk once ( created a chalkboard blotter in the center ) and that's all it took to sell that one too!

  3. Cool idea for a desk! Now why didn't I think of that?! Fabulous!

  4. Trying to figure out what sells is tricky stuff. I love that you painted the slats too! Nice job!

  5. So cute. I have two of these and have thought about doing that. Now I am! Came over from a comment you left on my blog. Glad I visited.
