Every busy kitchen needs a chalkboard, right? I needed one but couldn't find the right size so I decided to turn an old thrift store tray into a chalkboard instead. Maybe one of the easiest diy projects I've done but I love the way it turned out.
It's perfect for making notes for guests like I did this weekend for our Thanksgiving dinner guests...
Here's what I started with.
A little newspaper, chalkboard sparay paint and Frog Tape were all the required goods.
Protect the areas you don't want to chalk up with paper and tape it down.
Apply 2 coats of paint. Pull off the Frog Tape as soon as you finish applying the second coat and this will ensure the paint has a crisp, clean line.
Rub your chalk across the entire surface and then wipe it off. This will ensure that your works of art won't set into the paint when you first use the chalk on it.
Perfect for leaving messages for the family.
Or organizing your spices and keeping a running list of what you need at the grocery store.
