The project started out what I thought to be quick and easy, was not. Well, it was easy but not quick. I bought the chalkboard paint a long time ago with no project in mind. I thought the price looked good. According to the paint directions, the surface had to be primed, borrowed that from Mick. One coat of chalkboard paint, let it dry eight hours, a second coat and let that dry for 24 hours. Finally, cover the entire surface with chalk and wipe off
I was only going to make one candle holder until I read the directions. I need to buy more candles now.
I never like burning candles unless they are in a container. Safety issue.
