You can find them in thrift stores and maybe even in the back of your mother's hutch! I have several of my grandmother's up in the attic. Old "silver" serving trays.
I happen to find one in a box of goodies I bought at an auction. It wasn't "old" but it was fairly nice....not a cheapo. What to do, what to do.
Seriously, who uses silver trays any more...nobody, so you have to find SOMETHING to do with them!
First, I tried painting it with chalkboard paint. After curing over night, I pretty much scraped it off with my fingernail.
That was an epic FAIL!
Magnets? Dry erase? How about BOTH!!!!
I had some left over round magnets from another project so I glued some little black pom-poms on them, glued one on the end of a dry-erase marker for an eraser....hot glued a piece of magnet on the marker...and there you have it!
A magnetic dry erase board!
I also hot glued a frame hanger on the back....
Or you can hot glue magnets on the back and stick it to your fridge...that would be cool!
I have a plain ole' white dry erase board on my fridge.
This one is a lot prettier!
