Old metal tray just taking up space
Chalkboard calendar for my fridge
Okay, so I had a good plan, it just didn't turn out as great as I had hoped. Does that ever happen to any of you? I wanted to share the project with you anyway, because I think there are a lot of possibilities with it. I sprayed the tray with primer and put on a couple coats of chalkboard paint. This all worked great and I would highly reccomend it. The problem is that a big black tray stuck to my fridge doesn't look as cool as I hoped it would. I had planned to make a bunch of magnets to go with it (with words like birthday, appointment, playdate, etc.) but I think I might scrap the idea and try to think of some other calendar solution. Sydney on the other hand absolutely loves it, so if nothing else this is a great idea for a really transportable chalkboard for kids. Or it would be cute used as a tray for drinks - you could write the name of your beverage on the tray. Or as a menu board for parties, or a million other things I'm sure! Leave a comment and let's hear your ideas!!
