Here's an old tray that got a makeover this week. I love the shape of the edges...I'm a sucker for anything with curvy lines!
It wasn't pretty when the makeover started. It had a commercial paint effect that was suppose to look like distressing, but was just some brown paint added in splotches. I think I paid $2.50 for the tray at a garage sale. The tag on the bottom said, Hobby Lobby $25.90.
Here's a fail -- I thought I could just paint the inside of the tray and leave the outside black. I know what you're thinking... Why???
I don't know is the honest answer.
I took a look at my handiwork and decided it needed more white so I finished off the sides with white paint too.
Before I add some sort of finish to protect the paint, I'm living with it for a while. I think it would be nice to add some kind of graphics to the center area. What do you think?
The Graphics Fairy has some pretty printable graphics, which are free, and lots of information on adhering the graphics to the surface you have. Here's what I'm considering...
If you haven't been to The Graphics Fairy's website, you're in for a treat. This link The Graphics Fairy will take you to my favorite section, but have a look around her site because there is so much to see.
Thanks for dropping in!
