Last week I went "junking." I hit the goodwills, the thrift shops, and the flea malls. While junking, I found this tray pictured above. I bought it up because I loved the size and shape of it, not because of it's aesthetic value. Anyways...it was a steal. I also came upon a cute cheese ball cover and base. I grabbed that up too. Here is a pic of it...But first, the tray. I have been seeing some really cute chalkboard trays. So, I decided to make my ugly tray into a cute chalkboard. I got a can of chalkboard spray paint and coated the tray.While the tray was drying, I cut out a stencil of the letter "T."
When the tray was VERY dry, I placed the stencil on the tray and dabbed it with white paint. I removed the stencil and finished the "T" up with a fine tip paint brush. Now, as for the cheese ball cover...I first epoxied a dollar store candle holder to the bottom of the plate. Next, I painted the plate black with a paint brush and some craft paint. When it was good and dry, I put a coat of sealant on it.
So...once again, here is the after pic of both trash to treasure projects. The projects cost around 11.00. They were quite fun and add a punch to a bland corner of my kitchen.
Thanks to you all for stopping by. Check in again on Friday for the May giveaway. TaTa for now...
