Pinterest Inspired Thrift Store Silver Tray / Chalkboard Paint

I saw this fabulous tray on Pinterest and I had to try this DIY project!

First of all I found this tray for $1.99 at a thrift store and then bought chalkboard paint for .79

Super, super easy project!!!

First of all apply the paint in a vertical direction, let it dry one hour and then apply in a horizontal direction.

Paint vertical, let dry one hour, then paint horizontal

Not only can you use this tray as a chalk board but it is also magnetic!

I made a bow out of a mens tie and applied it with a hot glue gun.
