DIY Chalkboard Tray

After browsing good old Pinterest, I stumbled upon this gem.  You can buy one here!  

I decided it would be worth a shot to make my own since I had a stack of Dollar Store trays leftover from a party heading for the trash and a can of chalk board spray paint itching to be used. 

{ What You Need }
Chalk Board spray paint
Painter's tape

Tape off the edges of your tray.  I wanted to leave the outside of mine unpainted.

Then I took it outside and gave it two coats of the chalk board paint.  I waited about 20 minutes after the first coat before doing the second.  I then let it dry overnight.

The next day I used my hot glue gun and some burlap ribbon I had to make a bow for the top and glued it on.

I stuck it in a cookbook stand I have in the big empty space behind our sink that has needed some love and voila!

This was so easy and cost me nothing!  I love you Pinterest!
