One of the things I love about crafting is transforming inexpensive objects into something that looks much more upscale. This was the goal with the $1 wood tray I picked up in the clearance section of a craft store. After decoupaging on some sample mixed media papers and applying jute around the handles, I love the way it looks.
Makes me think of sitting on a porch near the ocean sipping a cold glass of lemonade (or maybe a margarita). This would also make a great hostess gift.
Here is another view - the paint has some lighter aqua dry brushed over the top, which is a bit hard to see in the photos. You can always click on the image for a close up view.
Thanks so much for visiting today!
