This is so easy it's more of a "Look what I did, guys!" instead of a "How To".
While shopping the crafty store the other day I stumbled on chalk board paint in colors. Sweet! Before I had only seen black.
Then I found this while thrifting. 2 bucks for the beautiful green tray with fruit and flowers on it. Some sand paper, spray primer, and my chalk board paint.
Then two coats of the chalk board paint with a foam brush. Letting it dry an hour between coats. Then 24 hours for the paint to cure.
I have red accents in my kitchen so this goes great. The color is brighter than I expected. Once it is all chalked up it will tone down a bit.
The result makes me happy! Now what else can I turn into a chalk board around here.
