Here is another great project using chalkboard paint!
Gather your supplies:
Sanding Block or Sandpaper
Chalk Board Paint
***See notes in previous post regarding Chalk Board Paint.
Use your sanding block or sand paper to prepare the tray. This tray was metal with a coat of semi-gloss dark blue paint. Roughing up the surface will allow the chalk board paint to adhere better.
Brush on an even coat (or two, if you’d like) of chalk board paint. I find that a sponge brush provides a smoother finish which is nice for a project like this.
Allow paint to dry and add a ribbon to hang. If you can’t thread ribbon through your tray, add adhesive hangers to the back to thread ribbon through or to hang tray directly on the wall.
Even in the age of technology, chalkboards have a special charm!
