My mama has quite a few cocktail specialties.. She always uses fresh ingredients and has really perfected some favorites. I wanted to make her a chalkboard style sign for a fun conversation piece in her home. I love how it came out, with all of her specialties!! I cut out the size of wood that I wanted and used the router to give a nice decorative edge. Then I painted the wood with black glossy paint, and used paint pens that I found in the craft section of Walmart. The white especially needed two coats for good vibrant coverage. I ended up being really happy with the vibrant colors on black! After the paint was dry I sprayed four coats of poly finishing spray for a beautiful final result.
