Saw It, Pinned It, Did It- #15

 
Back again for another version of Saw It, Pinned It, Did It with Katie and Stephanie! I loved looking at your pictures and reading your blog recaps of your fun blogger weekend. It looks like you girls had a blast.
 
 
Today I have another wedding craft.....a super easy, super cheap DIY Dollar Tree chalkboard.
 
Here is my Pinspiration:

And here is my version:
 
 
It's hard to tell in the picture, but the outer edge color is actually a very light mint green. I'm not sure yet where I'm going to use these, but I think I'm either going to leave them like they are and hang them on the backs of our chairs at the reception, or I'll erase it and use it as a sign at the guest book tables.
 
 This is what the tray started out looking like. You can find them at Dollar Tree for $1 (obviously).
First, I spray painted them with white primer, then I spray painted them with Krylon Catalina Mist.
And lastly, I painted the inner circle with chalkboard paint. EASY as 1-2-3!
 
These could be used for so many different things....and a great gift idea too!
 
Can't wait to see what you've linked up.
