My Old Girl is taking our reign on frugal-dom into the ground.

Tonight my awesome husband saved the day because she was about to blow me through the roof. Apparently a half jug-a-lug of coolant was what the Dr. ordered and my B was there to get the job done.

Luckily, the jug of green goo was under $10, which is MUCH less than the bill I had calculated in my head for the mechanic. ::WHEW::

What has your husband or loved one done for you lately that you absolutely appreciated?

We have a HUGE frame taking up precious space in our guest closet, where will our guests hang all of their closthes when they arrive if there is a huge frame in the way?

How about turning it into a great big, fancy, chalkboard for the kitchen? Done.

FYI: The Krylon Magnetic spray paint is almost a joke and at $10.99 a can, it is an expensive joke. The can says the color is gray, mine came out all shades of white and gray, I even shook the can for longer than the recommended two minutes, so you would have to spray a different color over if you wanted to hide the gray/white camo. The magnetism does not work well at all; I have 1 magnet that will stick to the board, everything else has too big of a magnet, so forget about being able to actually put a paper reminder up on the fancy board. I will definately be calling Krylon to receive a refund because this product did not meet my expectations, which were pretty high due to the claims on the can and website. Good Marketing, Bad Product. If it comes to doing another project like this, I will be spending $ on sheet metal from the plumbing department at my local hardware store – would have this time, but they only have 24×36 and my frame is 24×48.

The chalkboard paint is holding up just as expected, I have written a few notes on the board and wiped off with a clean microfiber cloth and it still looks nice. I would recommend not pushing down so hard on the chalk, you do not want to scratch the paint off this baby, do you?

Dalescraft Buffet - WAY Before

And I don’t know what to do with it.

Originally, I wanted to paint it like this hutch, but a different color. Brooke has all of the information on priming, painting and glazing; I was pumped and ready to roll.

But then, everybody that has come over and seen the piece has told me that they would NEVER paint it and would just refinish it… ::sigh:: Isn’t that just boring?

The buffet has no sentimental value, my grandma purchased it at an auction a long time ago and now it’s in my hands. There is a Dalescraft Fine Furniture sticker in the inside of the door, but I can’t find any information on the brand… so it must not be rare or exclusive.

 What is a girl to do!?
