Tray Do-Over

I spent my Sunday afternoon transforming my $4.00 thrift find into something more functional for my decor.

My wooden tray started out ugly with golden handles. I removed the handles to paint them antique bronze, and in the process discovered that the handles were marked "Canada". Was the tray originally from Canada? Little things like this always make me curious :-)

I primed the tray white and then spray painted it aqua. I love the color so much I'm looking for something else to paint this color HAHA!

Isn't my little baseball player cute? *grin*

I also modpodged some black and white scrapbook paper in the bottom of the tray. I need to practice more doing this... it's a good thing I planned on putting display items on the tray!

I'm linking to these Monday parties:

  1. Adorable! I wonder if there's any way to make a tray like this food safe?

  2. That's a really beautiful tray now.

  3. @ Party Mom- Tater Tots & Jello referenced a spray for food safety, but didn't give a product name. I'll be researching more myself :-)

  4. Very cute! I love the color you chose....what a great find!

  5. Saw this on one of the link parties and just had to comment! Love this color combo - the aqua with a black and white pattern is gorgeous!

  6. oh I love it! so cute. I posted a new tray also on Made by you! Great minds think alike :)

  7. It looks beautiful! I saw your post on Dittle Dattle. I did something similar & posted about it on my blog ( -- I love reclaiming trays! I'm now following your blog. :-)
