I am slightly obsessed with the whole chalkboard look right now and lately I have been seeing some really cool chalkboard silver trays. I wanted to give it a try so I was pretty excited when I spotted this beauty for $3.50 at a thrift store.
First I taped off the edges with blue painters tape.
Then I used a foam brush to apply chalkboard paint. (I realized after that I should have sprayed it first with a metal primer but that's ok, it just meant I had to apply a few extra layers and now I know for next time.)
And this is the finished product! So lovely...
Oh and did I mention the trays are magnetic? A perfect spot for your diy magnets! (tutorial coming soon.)
