DIY projects are not only fun but help us be more creative in new ways.
Goal: Making a table top out of a metal utility shelf that has a textured look.
Items Used: Shelf, black chalkboard paint, medium gray paint, roller, sponge, washcloth
Cost: Black chalkboard paint & roller ($13), I already had all other items
Time: 30 minutes
Paint one coat of black chalkboard paint on shelf, let dry
Mix black chalkboard paint with a medium gray paint
With sponge, apply black/gray mixture until desired look, let dry
Apply black paint only with washcloth (bunched up into a ball) to lighten black/gray texture as needed.
