If' you’re Darby’s dad, you should NOT read this post!
I’m not kidding Dad! Click the ‘X’ and get outta here for a while ;-)
What do you give a man that has
two amazing daughters everything?! I don’t know if anyone else has this trouble, but every year I am stumped on what to get my dad to show him my appreciation for being my dad.
To make it more of a challenge, whenever I give a gift, I try to hand make it. To me, it always means more when I receive a gift that someone has thought about and has really invested their time in. I try to do this for others every chance I get. This year was no different. I wanted to make my dad something that was special, from my heart….and a little bit silly.
Even though the package instructed that only 2 coats of paint were needed, I found that I needed about 7 coats of chalkboard paint for the lid of the tin. Maybe because of the material? I don’t know, but it was no big deal to paint a few more coats since it dries so quickly.
When the paint was dry, I used the chalk to write “Nuts and Bolts” on the top of the tin. I thought this was pretty clever since my dad is a wonderful carpenter (among many other things) and granola should be a staple food group ;-)
