This year I was looking to do something a little different for the front porch for Christmas.
When I tripped over some skis at the thrift store on half price day, I knew I had my answer.
Chalk painted skis for my porch!
They were sort of ugly though. Black with silver and a bunch of dings and dents.
I brought them home anyhow and painted them with some red chalk paint (American Paint Company's Fireworks Red). A bright red spray paint would work equally as well!
Just tape off the binding area and paint away.
Since I had used a chalk paint, I then waxed them (Minwax Paste Finishing Wax), because all good skiers know you have to wax your skis. Although I'm not sure this is the type of waxing the downhill racers are talking about.
BTW, I have since shown some photos of the whole porch. I'm calling it my Holiday Front Porch For The Picnicing Ski Bums.
