Hurricane Isaac brought on the tropical rains last week. Thankfully we were spared the severe flooding, but 8” of rain meant there would be no yard sales. So with no sales to attend, I thought I would head to the garage and tackle one of the many projects awaiting my attention.
A few months ago, I picked up this rusty Nashco tray.
I love Nashco trays. They are heavy and beautifully hand-painted (as was this one), but someone certainly didn’t appreciate its beauty or didn’t care to display its 25th Anniversary congratulations.
But I knew exactly how it should be repurposed ….. It would make a wonderful chalkboard/magnetboard. I sanded and taped off the center for chalkboard paint, because I didn't want to paint the lacy silver edge.
For that little extra touch, I wanted to created a “ledge” for a piece of chalk. I raided my hubby’s toolbox and found an old stainless steel cup pull. I turned it over and attached it to the bottom of the tray by screwing it through the lacy edge. I also attached a hook on the back for hanging.
And here she is! …….
The lacy edge is perfect for adding seasonal touches!
I’m so Ready for Fall!
How about you?
