“Creativity is contagious, pass it on!” – Albert Einstein

In our today’s post, we bring you trendy DIY chalkboard tray!

What’s so good about this DIY?

  • Super easy and fun to make
  • Easy to find material
  • Trendy
  • Makes a great gift πŸ™‚

So, let’s get it started!

All You Need

  • A piece of wood
  • Chalkboard paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Painter’s Tape
  • Ruler (optional)
  • Paint to colour the borders
  • Drawer handles
  • Glue


  1. Gather all the supplies.
  2. Start by taping the borders of the wood piece. This is an essential step as it helps in attaining the symmetry.
  3. Now, let’s paint the piece of wood left in the center with the chalkboard paint. I suggest coating it twice, putting the second coat once the first one is dried.
    You can remove the tape once the chalkboard paint is dried.
  4. It’s time to paint the borders now, I used the gold acrylic colour. You can choose according to what you like.
  5. We will now glue the drawer handles to the edges using a super hard glue which is available at almost any hardware store. To ensure that the alignment is right, you can use a ruler/measuring tape as shown in the picture below.
  6. Give it some time to dry and Tada! Chalkboard tray is ready!!!
    Invite some guests over and have fun! πŸ™‚

Note: We recommend using parchment/wax paper to serve food items directly, otherwise you can serve in the bowls and dishes πŸ™‚
