Ok, I’m just going to come clean and make this admission: “My name is Lynne and I’m a chalkboard paint addict.” I don’t know why it has the power over me that it does, but I just can’t get enough of it. I’ve painted closet doors, made a chalkboard for my dining room, made labels for baskets . . . you get the idea. I’ve been on a self-imposed chalkboard paint detox for several months now and haven’t relapsed once, until today that is. You see, I bought this wooden tray at a flea market a while ago, scored from the bargain table for a mere $1!
I have been wracking my brain on exactly what I wanted to do with it. Should I paint it? Decoupage it? Cover it with fabric? Then today I was out in the garage and found a leftover can of, yep, chalkboard paint. I immediately thought of my bargain flea market tray and knew today would be the day I fell off the wagon. I am not going to dwell on it, what’s done is done. I do, however, have this pretty awesome serving tray that I’m really going to enjoy using.
How about this? A self-serve martini bar with the recipe for the perfect dry martini! I know, right? Or maybe I’ll use it for serving cheese and wine. Oh the possibilities are endless. All I know is right now, after all my hard work, I’m making myself a martini, dirty that is.
Don’t worry, no intervention will be necessary. I had my daughter hide what was left of the can so I wouldn’t be tempted to paint anything else.
