Horseshoe Cake Pan Message Center

This former cake pan makes for a handy message center.
Old cake pans can be found in abundance.  Cover one side with a minimum of three coats of chalkboard paint.  I recommend taping the pan off well and using the spray paint version for a smoother finish. 
The best part is most cake pans are made of steel so magnets will stick right to them. 
Do you think I could pass this one off as a C for Candy?

If you're anything like me you have "to do" notes on just about every flat surface of your home. Here is a fun, easy project that can provide a sense of organization and can also be your daily good luck charm.

Wishing JMS members "luck" in the New Year!

Keep on Junking,
