Where every piece of junk has endless possibilities!
One of the things I have really wanted for a long time is a slate tray to use for serving cheese and fruit when we have wine nights. But if you have looked at the price of slate trays they are not cheap. Enter this old photo of the Eiffel Tower on fiber board that I got at Walmart for my dorm room in college (yes I still have things from college, some stuff I tend not to throw away….no I am not a hoarder….ok maybe a selective hoarder).
Recently I was doing a purge of our stuff for Spring and I came across the photo in the closet and thought to myself I should get rid of it, it will never be a part of my style again. Then a small voice in the back of my head (always listen to this voice if you have one) said “give it a week and see if you can come up with something to do with it”. I kid you not, that night lying in bed I had the idea to spray paint it with chalk paint, add some fun handles and call it the slate tray of my dreams!
This project is another easy, quick one. I think it took me all of a morning to do.
Add wine and cheese…and most importantly friends and it’s a party!
