I have this super fun and easy tutorial for you today and know you are just going to love making these for yourself and kids. Several weeks ago I found these great serving trays for $1.25 total. I knew right away I wanted to use these serving trays as a chalkboard for my little girl and for me.
|These lovelies received a coat of ivory paint.|
|Once the paint was dried I painted one tray pink and other black chalkboard paint by Valspar. I was impressed with Valspar chalkboard paint; so do give it a try.|
|I did give each tray three coat of chalkboard paint, but two coats were fine. |
Once the chalkboard paint dried I rubbed chalk all over the trays and wiped clean.
My little girl LOVES to write on her chalkboard tray. She spends a couple of hours at her desk just drawing on a chalkboard tray. This is great to take in the car and long road trips so the kiddos can play games (tic tac toe, hangman, draw etc.). The oval tray is going to hang on a shutter I have, but I really want to find some more. These trays are great to turn them into chalkboard trays and put them in the kitchen, office and kiddos rooms and anywhere your heart desires. I am so happy with the results and I love using these two different chalkboard paints. Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks for leaving a SWEET comment. Have an amazing week!
PS: Come back on Friday, I am going to have a SWEET giveaway! See you then!
