Chalkboard Drink Server

Happy rainy Columbus Day everyone!  With the kids out of school, we have been having a lazy morning at home.  Since I have some time with just me, a cup of coffee, and my computer, I thought I would share a quick project that I did this weekend.  It all started when I saw this old drink server in a local thrift store:

Now, I love the Clemson Tigers - I am an alumnus! - but this server has seen better days!  It had about an inch of dust on it, and that paw was flaking off.  But oh, I had plans for this treasure!  I started by taking off the handles, sanding off the paw and giving it a good cleaning.

Next, I taped up the cork in the cupholders:

Then I sprayed on primer (I forgot to take a picture of that step), sprayed on several coats of chalkboard paint, put the handles back on and voila!

This will be in The Keeping Room Booth tomorrow!
