You know when you get something from the thrift store and you aren’t exactly sure what you are going to do with it but it’s so cheap and cool that you just can’t pass it up? Okay, that happens to me so often that I’m beginning to feel like a hoarder.
That’s where the story of this little baby starts. Isn’t she pretty? Well she is now.
That tray used to look like this. Picked her up from the thrift store for $.50. I saw that price and it went straight into my cart. Then of course it took it’s proper place in the garage (hoarder status) until I decided what I was going to do with it.
I don’t know about you but I love me some chalkboard paint 🙂 It’s so fun!
I painted the whole tray white, then painted the inside with chalkboard paint. The bright white against the black chalkboard is a lovely contrast don’t you think?
This cute little tray has already been used in several rooms in my house. Here it’s being used on my coffee table. That didn’t last long because I have an 11 month old that doesn’t believe anything belongs on the table 🙂
I imagine my fresh chalkboard tray will get a lot of use around here. I’m so excited about it. And hello, 50 cents! You all know how I love a cheap transformation! Yay!
