DIY Thursday

I am joining Kimba's DIY Thursday link party.
Stop on over there and check out other great ideas!

I forgot to take a picture of the tray before, but it was painted a lighter shade and you can see the blue design in the middle. I just didn't go with the rest of my decor, so I decided to change it up.
I sprayed it with Heirloom white, sanded the edges and then wiped stain on the sanded part to give it a distressed look.

I used scrapbook paper to line the inside. Yes, it took forever to match up the pattern but I did it. And glued it down with stick glue!

And here it is in my dining room (on my buffet) just ready for some dessert!


Thanks for stopping in---feel free to leave me your comments, as I love them!

I have a tray waiting for a make-over and I have some pretty scrapbook paper. I do believe I will try it.
Yours turned out lovely.

Love it! It's funny, a good friend came over last night to craft and she crafted a serving tray just like that! She did something different but I love the scrapbook paper idea! - Ashley - shanty2chic
