So a little while ago I made a chalkboard with a nice wooden frame and a "windowbox" that holds chalk (and whatever else Viv wants to put in there). It's not too lightweight or portable so I thought I'd make the "travel" version. I'm pretty pleased with the finished product.
This one was really simple and easy. I bought a tray at Family Dollar (but I recommend getting one even cheaper because the non-stick coating won't be as nice). I sanded it and primed it (priming is a MUST, but don't use oil-based primer such as Kilz...I had a can of that handy so tried that first and it wasn't EVER going to dry on my tray).
Then I slapped some more random items onto magnets, put some chalk into the Altoids tin (which is now a removable "caddy" to put stuff in)....and Voila! How simple is that??
