Painted Platter

Here's my garage sale platter painted with chalkboard paint.
I sanded the area before painting.
I did not tape off the area.
I free handed it!
I started taping the area & soon realized that wasn't
 going to work very well.
I painted two coats of Krylon Chalkboard paint
with a sponge brush.
I let it thoroughly dry before applying the 2nd coat.
I'm pleased with the finished project.
Not bad for a 75 cent garage sale find!

Enjoy life . . .
it's delicious!

I love it! I made a few a couple of weeks ago. I am now looking for all kinds of platters! I feel bad painting over whatever is in the middle of the trays! Some of the art work is hand painted.

Very cool project. I might try that it I didn't already use a plain pottery platter in my kitchen for leaving messages with dry-erase markers.
