ETA: Can I get more info on the adhesive you used??

Not sure what else you want to know- I got it at a hardware store, it was about $6 for a 148mL tube. It's actually a sealant and adhesive, which is what I wanted since my windows also have leaks in them.
Here is a pic:

Hey, I used blackboard paint for the first time making a scrabble chalk board as a gift for a scrabble fan. The paint was inexpensive and available at a local hardware shop. I used two coats. It works pretty well as far as I can tell, I wrote on it in chalk and erased it fine.
All I did was use masking tape to edge off a square (I'm a messy painter) and put a square of tape in the middle to keep the star. I painted it, and then glued on some letters and the letter holders which make a convenient chalk holder. I drilled a couple holes at the sides and top so it can be nailed into the wall, and attached some nails with tape on the board.
I Included "chalk" in English and French, because the girl I'm giving it to is French.

thanks! Well, maybe I should have made that clear to begin with. It's a card game that you play with a board and pegs, to keep track of the points you earn from the cards.
Here are unpainted cribbage boards:

My sun roof is right above my computer, and I wanted to find a way to dim the light a bit without completely blocking it out. Then I found a bunch of old slides in a forgotten corner of my house, and my problem was solved. I attached them using Lexel Clear, a transparent adhesive that sticks to wet surfaces after drying, and sticks to pretty much anything.

I made this board for my g-f who is a big fan of cribbage. It's made to hang up, and the clothes pegs are so she can put cards/notes/etc. up on display. It's not actually for playing crib, obviosuly, since some holes are covered. All I did was glue on the smaller clothes pegs, spray paint the whole thing silver (but first I covered the few areas I wanted to keep with tape), wait for it to dry, take off the tape and glue on this humungous black clothes pin I found at the dollar store. Then I just drilled a couple holes at the top and put hooks in. Note that I left a few pegs in, and titled it "crib notes". yeah for puns.

I made an oreo pillow for my brother who is a huge oreo fan. It was pretty simple because I am a pretty basic sew-er. Black velour, white cotton and felt letters (brown on one side, white on the other because I didn't have enough of either colour felt to do both.

Those look really nice. Great for animal-related things, but also baking supplies or spices he uses a lot of.
