Tray Makeover


Well, makeovers are usually better when you have a before shot, but here I am again digging through old projects while my family is moving and my crafting room is packed away. So please use your imagination on the before part of the project. I bought a dark wood tray at the thrift store for a couple bucks and thought it would be a nice addition to the family room. I sanded it lightly, spayed a few coats of cream spray paint on and then..I got stuck! I knew I wanted a pattern on the bottom but had no fabric in mind, no stencil to use, so I decided to give scrapbook paper a go. Using mod podge and 2 sheets of 12 by 12 paper, I glued it to the bottom of the tray and also put a few coats on top. Well...I can't say it was the best choice. I had to trim and piece together several areas to make it cover the tray. There are way too many seams so I will be redoing this one again and you will see the before and after that time around. But until then, it works for me.
