Check out how chalkboard paint can turn pretty shiny trays into elegant, wedding-ready signs for your big event! Aaron and Emily used these beauties to direct guests to their ceremony and venue locations, and to highlight their card box…


Just think of all the trays you could use and ways you could make this work for your wedding!

  1. This is such a great idea! This would be a nice way to spiff up some trays from the dollar store and have some affordable signage 🙂

    • They were so cheap! We also used them for our centrepieces to stack everything onto!
      I never paid more than $5 for a tray and they were in every op shop I went into. The chalkboard paint was only about $6 for half a litre and that was all I needed!
