I wonder if Pinterest will lose its allure someday?  
While I am still completely enthralled with the time-sucking habit of pinning, 
I thought I might as well attempt a few of those great ideas I can't seem to stop pinning.  
This one seemed easy enough.

I found tons of inspiration for chalkboard trays.

Here is my version of the chalkboard silver tray.....

Just keeping it authentic people!
I could have styled it beautifully and snapped a few pictures, 
but yesterday was one of THOSE days, need I say more.
And to make matters worse, I am not a "Coors Light" kind of girl.  
However, I made do with what I had on hand.
The two of my three children who know how to read both asked me what this message meant. 
I didn't elaborate. 

The best part about the project is that I scored the tray for a mere $1 at the thrift store. 
It is a nice heavy Oneida silver tray.  
My feelings weren't going to be hurt had it not turned out like I planned. 

You can follow me here on Pinterest.

One of my friends actually created a board titled "Pins I have Tried".  
She pinned all the projects she has attempted so far. 
Let's just say, she has been a busy girl.
Love this idea.
