Silver Tray Turned Chalkboard Tray

A couple of weeks ago, I came across a silver tray at the thrift store.
It wasn't in the best condition and wasn't the fanciest of trays, 
so I thought that I would do something different with it.

I decided to make it a chalkboard tray.

This is what it looked like originally.

 I used this metal primer that I found this at Michaels

and gave it a solid coat.
 Per the bottle instructions, I gave it 24 hours to dry.

Then I used this this Multi-Surface Chalkboard paint in the color oxblood.

I gave it three separate coats allowing more than an hour drying time between each coat.

I think it turned out pretty cute!

Come back on Monday and see what else I plan to do with this tray. . .
Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless.

Arise, shine; for your light has come!

Cute idea and I like that color for a change instead of the traditional black. Thanks so much for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party.

Pretty and dainty! I think the red goes very nicely with the silver!
