Thrift Store Tray

So last week I mentioned that I bought this beauty at the local thrift store. When I saw it for $1.99, I knew I HAD to have it.

Well I took it home and got out my spray paint and went to work. I put an ivory color on it and it only took 2 coats to cover it well. I then cut out a stencil with my Cricut and painted it on with brown craft paint. I saw the "Nest" on a pillow from PB and I thought it would look fab on this tray in the guest bedroom. After I let that dry over night I got the RL Glaze and added that. I LOVE how it turned out. This weekend while shopping with my MIL I found the saucer and cup, bell and tea towel.

Total cost for this little beauty was $1.99. I had all the paint and glaze already in the garage. :) Love when I can make things budget friendly, so does Mr. T.

Until we meet again, happy crafting!

Turned out beautifully for a $1.99. I'm officially on the hunt for an old tray to refinish!
