Quick Craft Project

A month or so ago, I found this cute little geometric tray at a thrift store. It was looking pretty rough, but I really liked the shape and size of it, and I knew I could make it better once I got it home.

It had wheels on the bottom, too, so I'm guessing it was used as a plant stand.

Anyway, I removed the wheels, and the messed up wooden pieces that were peeling, and primed it. Then, I painted it a leftover gray color that I had at the studio.

It's sitting on my kitchen counter now.

  2. Looks great! I snatch them up when they are wicker and spray paint them. The lids on your jars look great in gold. No curtains yet I see. Alison

  5. I bought something very, very similar about 6 months ago and was just waiting for the perfect solution. Thanks. I'm thinking of adding handles on opposite sides to use as a tray. Surely you considered that, so tell me why I should rule out that possibility.

    1. well, this tray is really not that big... if it were larger, i might, but to be honest, it's so small, it'd probably look funny!
