I’ve said before how much I love shopping at Target.
Here is one reason.
I loved this larger serving tray that was part of their Christmas collection.
Just look at the lovely curves.
Do I really use serving trays?
Especially a serving tray that is not food safe.
Well, no, and the price at $14.99 wasn’t that bad.
Why would they make a serving tray that is not food safe?
Probably because it is so pretty.
But on the 90% off Christmas sale at $1.49 for a gold leafed serving tray.
Ok, so I bought four of them.
I knew they had potential.
My first makeover was a chalkboard.
I had a can of chalkboard paint calling my name. This was my first project with it.
I decided to try the chalkboard just in the center.
I did a lot of taping off but it wasn’t enough.
I ended up painting the first edge that I had planned on leaving gold.
I’m pretty happy with the results.
But where to put it and how to hang it??
Well, I’m still working on that.
But look at her (yeah I’m sure a chalkboard is a female).
With those curves I think it has to be.
For now she is a part of my Valentine corner.
I suppose this would look a bit better if I actually had a chalk message on it.
I thought I might have had some chalk but I don’t.
Or I can’t find it….
Really, I don’t think I have any.
Well, not now anyway.
Chalkboard paint on hand*
Painters tape craft supply
Foam brush craft supply
Total cost: $1.49 plus basic supplies
* I think the chalkboard paint was $9.99 a quart and you use only a small amount, probably less than $.50 worth of it.
Next week I’ll share my second serving tray makeover.
