It is DIY day again over at ASPTL, and Transformation Thursday at Shabby Chic Cottage so here is a little chalboard tray for you to try out. I purchased this old silver tray from a yard sale several weeks ago. It had several rust spots which made it perfect for my chalkboard. I cleaned it, taped off the edges with painters tape, then used and exacto knife to cut out the scalloped border. I used spray chalboard paint, and did about 3 coats. You have to be careful when spraying so your paint doesn't run.
Here is what I ended up with. Perfect for my kitchen counter to post a bible verse for the week, uplifting reminders, or menu plans and whatever. This is so easy so give it a try.
I am a wife to one fantastic husband and mother to two wonderful children. One recently married and the other away at college, finding myself, for the first time with an empty nest. I enjoy making my home beautiful on a budget. I love the Lord and desire to please him in all that I do.
