So it was a sad day when I noticed the top of my dryer was rusting. Why, you ask? I would use the top as a shelf and the bleach that was sitting there would spill out. Over the years, it ate away at the top. So my nice dryer soon had a very rusty old look on top. It's a good dryer-- it just has an ugly look. :-)
So when I saw that you could paint your dryer I jumped on the idea and did it! I made a chalkboard on top. YEP! I really did it and it turned out pretty cute.
What did I use?
- Ultra-cover Rustoleum Primer
- Chalkboard Spray Paint
- My Dryer
- Painters Tape (though next time I would probably use packaging tape or Duck Tape)
What did I do?
- First I outlined my dryer with paper and painters tape (the painters tape didn't work very well so I would encourage you to use a stickier tape)
- Next I sprayed a coat of primer and let it dry
- Then I sprayed a couple coats of Chalkboard Paint
- Finally after that was dry, I sprayed a coat of clear glaze.
- When it was all dried and done, I wrote my laundry schedule and a couple of encouraging phrases on my chalkboard
