Pewter Tray Update

6:00:00 AM

As long as I have chalk board paint, 
I will find something to paint....

How about a 10 minute update on an old pewter tray?

 Just a few coats of chalk board paint in the 
center of this tray...

A couple of screws to hold it to the wall...
(they had to be long screws to allow for the depth of the tray 
and you might want to paint them to match the handle ) 

A basket to hold the chalk and eraser...

 And in just a few minutes you have a message center.

I hang this one on the wall next to my daughter's room.
It holds all her mail and is great for leaving a note.

Have a great day!
