Here is more on the teaser from my last post. Gotta love that a cheap tray can be turned into a chic tray thanks to trying out techniques collected across blogland.
My spiffed up tray now has a new home on my dining room table showing off an assortment of favorite things. The print is from Graphics Fairy and I used the Modge Podge transfer method.
The tray was an inexpensive pine tray from Michaels. I used Annie Sloan's Chalk paints in Cream as an undercoat and Ducks Egg Blue as the topcoat. Then messed around with walnut stain and paste wax to finish it after some sanding and rubbing.
Roses should always be dried and saved. You never know when you will need a pretty dried rose to finish off a vignette.
I like the very strong contrasts on this tray but suspect that some might say it is a bit much.
This is a sweet moment in my house. I love those spots that just make me smile when I see them.
I will definitely keep playing around with typography transfers, paints and waxes.
