DIY Chicken Wire Noteboard September 26, 2011
Way back, I took my maiden voyage into the world of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Now, some of you would dive right in and paint your heart away, on a desk, dresser or hutch. Nope, not me. I started with a picture frame! Not one to move at break neck speed, in the land of tools, instructions or paint, this was a safe approach to take.
That left me with, well, a painted picture frame! What will I do with that, I asked myself? Then, friend Dorothy, told me about her new chicken wire note board, and I/we got right to work!
Mr. Wonderful gets full credit for this one. As usual, he did a terrific job and had just the right tools for the job! This is a man who has his fathers and grandfathers tools, plus his own. He adores power tools and when he heard I was going to re-cover some chair seats, he went on-line and ordered a air-powered staple gun that’s on its way, but not here for this project. Anyway, check out the tools! The wire cutter looks lethal. Rusty? Yes, but it cut like a champ.
