Chalkboard Paper

A few weeks ago my sister, Kathy from Creative Home Expressions mentioned chalkboard paper in a comment on my blog.  Well, of course that got the wheels turning for this garage sale mirror I got over the summer:
I loved the gold frame and used chalkboard paint over the mirror.  Unbeknownst to me, when the paint dried and I tried to prime it, the scratches and scribbles were awfully noticeable.  Look closely, you can see the epic fail.  Soooo...before I made my new year's resolution to cut back on buying stuff I don't need, I ordered this self-adhesive chalkboard paper from ABC Supplies.
It arrived yesterday and I got busy this morning putting it to use.  Now I still have to work on trimming the edges but what a great difference!
It was a bit of a pain to use because it kept rolling back and sticking to the adhesive.  I think with a little practice, though, this could be great to use for all sorts of projects I have swimming around in my mind.

Now I just have to find a place for it!  ;)
