Here’s another great DIY Christmas gift idea: turn an old or ugly serving tray into a hip one by spraying it with chalkboard spray.
This will work on a frame or a porcelain platter or a silver platter or any number of other flat surfaces.
To make the serving tray, tape off the part of the platter you don’t want to be chalkboard and paint the rest with appropriate chalkboard paint. Read the manufacturer directions to make sure a. that the paint can work on the surface you’re painting (wood, porcelain, metal, etc.) and b. whether it is safe to put food on it.
