Chalk board tray/platter

I am joining the parties, Transformation Thursday at The Shabby Chic Cottage and DIY Day (and there is a giveaway today!) at A Soft Place to Land. Go check those two sites out for many more great ideas!!

I found this tray at His House. I tried to clean it up but even Wright's Silver Cream didn't work.

Enter Mr Spray paint.
And Viola!

I sprayed the whole thing Heirloom White and painted the middle with chalk board paint. And incase you are wondering and aren't from the South, our local football team is the South Carolina Gamecocks. Around here we just say Go Cocks! (hee)

I had another plate in this spot but it wasn't big like this one...and here is what it helps hide. This is behind the plate.

Not bad huh?
And kind of appropriate thing to post today since tonight is our weekly football game! Go Gamecocks!
Thanks for stopping in!

I've encountered a few trays that "refused" to be polished too. This is a great way to turn them into something useful and attractive! Thanks for sharing this fun project!

Way cute (but at my house it would have to say Go Tigers! LOL!) Oh,and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the little mug with the letter "A" on it with the sweet flowers tucked inside. That's just adorable!
