Chalkboard Platter

Yes, I'm jumping on the chalkboard paint wagon!  I saw a similarly post from a fellow blogger, Cindy at Beaux R'eves and decided to make my own.  Cindy's was round and more ornate, and absolutely gorgeous but I was too "chicken" to use my better ones.

I purchased some chalkboard paint from Lowe's.  Using a little sponge brush, my daughter carefully followed the recessed part of this platter. I have three of these platters that I purchased from a yard sale.  They are made of metal but not silverplate.

A very easy and simple project!

  2. Very nice :) I love chalkboards and I also like the name of your blog.

  3. Well it's just perfect on your island! You did a nice job. Thanks for sharing with the newbie party.

  4. Love this project. I have had an unopened jar of chalkboard paint for too long. Tried it on some Easter eggs over the weekend and it is fun to work with!

    1. This was my first chalkboard project and I can see endless possibilities with it!

  5. Tammy,
    Cute project! Your chalkboard turned out GREAT! I can't wait to try this. Now all I need to find is a tray. I'm a new follower!

  6. Your platter is awesome. I love the fact that the chalkboard came out so smooth and nice. My first attempt came out a bit lumpy for some reason. You have inspired me to do another one. Thanks so much for sharing!


  7. So cute! I will have to try this for my kitchen.

  8. Hi Tammy!

    That is a really great idea. It makes a great little accent piece that you can change out as needed. Great for the wall or a table.

    Thank you for sharing this at my party! (Also, thanks for the sweet comments about my husband and his job)
