Message Center with a Twist

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.

Look beyond the obvious and imagine the possibilities.
