Old Tray ~ New Chalkboard

Once in a while I like to stop by our Goodwill store. It’s always so busy in there. Yesterday I found this old tray.
I drilled two holes into the top to thread rope through. Sprayed it with chalkboard spray paint.

Once the paint was dry I attached the rope from the backside so that the knots would show in front.

Up on the mantel it looks awesome.
We are getting ready for our annual New Years Party. We invite friends & neighbors over for music, food, dancing & drinks. Somehow it ends up being a blast each time!

If you want to spruce up your own party visit Shelstring Blog where Michele has gathered lots of fun craft projects,game ideas and yummy recipes.

Have a safe and super Happy New Year!
