Message center with a twist...
This wooden tray was an interesting thrift store find.
It had great large metal handles... only problem was
that one of the sides was broken off when I bought it.
Rather than trying to fix it... I'm changing it.
I flipped the broken piece around to the top of the tray
rather than gluing it back onto the side.
I gave the tray a coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
in French Linen, leaving the center unpainted.
I went back to the center with a few coats of
chalk board paint.
I knew the large handles were great for something
other than a handle and here it is...
I attached curtain hooks through the tray handle.
Now it is a great place to clip on a photo or a note.
Sunglasses which are always hard to keep track of,
hang in plain view.
A great little message center with a handle twist!
Look beyond the obvious and imagine the possibilities.
