Dollar Store Silver Platter Turned Hanging Chalkboard

I am chalkboard crazy!  Love them…I adore leaving notes around the house, or being able to write a beautiful quote to share with my family and friends.  Last weekend, I stopped at the Dollar Tree to pick up some candle sticks for an upcoming project, and ended up buying this silver platter.  Yep…just $1.  It’s not aluminum, or at least it doesn’t feel like one of those flimsy aluminum foil pieces.  It is actually very sturdy, so I thought…hmmmm….chalkboard?  Of course!
I meant to take a picture of it before I painted it.  I always do.  But, there I was with my finger on the trigger of my favorite chalkboard spray paint, and I remembered to grab my camera…figures!
So, I spray painted it with 3 coats of chalkboard paint…ummm…love, love, love it!  I am now thinking of doing some kind of wall gallery that includes some of these!
This one is going to my shop/booth along with my sweet little desk.  I’m a little sad about letting it go now that I have painted it, but I have had a few inquiries about it already, so …
Let me just say, since finding chalkboard spray paint, I have been able to do so much more!  It’s one of my favorite products out there!
