Can't Beat A Quarter

This was originally 50 cents, but I happened upon a 50% off sale at the Gift and Thrift last week, as they are redesigning the store.  Half off sales are awesome, even if the item only started out at 50 cents!  :-)  I have seen these other places and just think they look so nice, so when I saw this, I had to have it.  Apparently, it was a wedding gift for some happy couple (well, at least they were happy once), because there are two names and a date in the middle.  Ah well...time to scratch it up and give it a new life.  I used sand paper to rough it up a bit...
Applied three coats of chalkboard paint and there you have it!  Easy peasy!  :-)

I love how it turned out!! I bought one at the thrift store a few weeks back to make into a magnet board. But I think I like your chalk board idea better!! I'm going to try it out :D

SWEET!!! I got a silver tray like this at a thrift store (paid more than a quarter though, darn it!). It's pitted, but I have had it in my bedroom with candles on top of it. I think it may be time for a re-do..........and I have chalkboard paint! Yippee!!!
