hello all!!!! i'm still around. moving at a slow pace, putting "things" back together in my worn out life. there's been some creating here & there. it seems to be happening in spurts. i'm having fun again. i've taken a long journey healing my wounds. i still enjoy reading and visiting blogs more then i do writing on my own blog. i guess that's because i'd rather have a verbal chat (i seem better at that then blogging).
 my travels around the blog block have been amazing. i'm in awe of the talent that each human holds within their own soul. the things that get redesigned, recycled & re-purposed are just great. i've seen many of these metal serving trays re-purposed with chalk board paint so, i thought i'd give it a whirl. recently purchasing annie sloan chalk paint which i found out about over at miss mustard seed. seeing marian's mega talent and her use of the paint and waxes has given me much inspiration during my hiatus. this project is very easy. i used spray paint (chalk board) for the inside of the tray. and the edges of each one of the trays i painted with annie sloan chalk paint. the colors i used are old white and provence. i think they came out cute. since i gave up my booth space last september, i may ask a few vendor's i know if i can consign with them. i will also be posting them on my etsy. i plan on purchasing louis blue and paris gray for a few more projects. there isn't any prep time when using the chalk paint. i cleaned my items with soap & water & used a small artist brush to paint the edges. the paint cleans up very easy. if you like the THREE R's~~ RECYCLE, REDESIGN & RE-PURPOSE check out this paint i think it's worth it.

Thanks so much for the link love. I'm glad you like chalk paint as much as I do!
