{Wood Serving Tray – Turned Chalk board}

I thought a serving tray would be so cute on my pantry door… 
SO I AM “SERVING” YOU ALL UP MY Before and After today.
I taped off the wood sides and painted the center with chalkboard paint. I gave it 3 nice coats, and I waited an hour in between each coat. Then I painted the trim with “Jamaican Sea” acrylic paint. I did a glaze over it to shabby it up with “Indian Turquoise. ”

 To shabby it up somemore and give it a rustic distressed look, I used distress ink, spreading it on from the ink pad or with a paper towel, and wiping off the extra I didn’t want with a paper towel.

Love all the “Serve/Serving” words you can write….. “SERVE YOURSELF.”
thanks for stopping by.
