Chalkboard Silver Tray

I often use chalk paint on my furniture projects, but this is the first time I have used my chalk paint for the purpose of creating a chalkboard. 

I purchased this tray for $2 a few weeks ago and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. :)

I mixed up my grout and flat paint mixture, then tinted it a dark grey with black acrylic paint.  I applied 3 coats to the tray, then rubbed it all over with chalk, wiped it off and presto!  A very quick and simple project with a great result.  I love it so much I've propped it up in our entryway table for everyone to see when they walk in.
