We came across this super simple DIY idea for a silver tray chalkboard. While the implementation of this idea is pretty quick and easy, the idea is golden! Well, silver, anyhow.
Virginia, writer of Blackflipflops
, took inexpensive silver plastic trays from the dollar store, added some chalkboard paint and embellishments, and ended up with an adorable note board that we love. This could be a gorgeous project to do with actual metal trays, as well---we constantly see them in thrift stores about town.
Virginia has added floral ornamentation (made out of pages from a book!) and wooden letters spelling "Notes." This is where you can get creative, or keep it simple, as we might be inclined to do. Either way, this is a DIY project that we just might actually do on our next day off!
