Chalkboard Signs From Thrifted Serving Pieces

Oh how I miss my little blog. Work work has been keeping me busy, and by the time I have free time, I’m too tired for projects. As I sit in my hotel room (at the Lenox so no complaints here) in Boston, on the opposite coast of my Loves, Husband, Shay, and our 3 fur babies, I woke up a little early so I could at least share one projects I just finished up.

Keep in mind I work from home, so this sign is completely irrelevant and unnecessary, but that’s not the point right? Look how cute it is. Jerry, and Shay just laugh, and indulge me.

I made this sign out of a piece picked up at the Goodwill. Yes, of course I shared the price below. It’s a nice heavy aluminum tray with rounded handles and a basket weave design. Swoon!

I simply taped it off with blue painters tape, and painted a few coats of chalkboard paint (don’t use that spray paint chalkboard paint….the finish is awful). Then I found some left over ribbon in my sewing box.

It makes me think of France. Oh speaking of, I watched a great movie, set in Paris. Movie is called “My Old Lady” with Kevin Kline, and Maggie Smith…I highly recommend.

I made this chalkboard sign using a great aluminum serving tray. My guess is it was a bread tray, or a cheese tray.

Yes, of course I had to share the bargain price of my new chalkboard sign. I feel it's my duty to save the world one thrift store treasure at a time!
