Trays

                                          

This ugly and dirty round tray was a find at Goodwill.
It cost me a cool $2.99-
the frame was .99-
After a cleaning and a quick spray of primer,
I painted this with my bff - Behr heavy cream!
Aren't the lines of the edges pretty and feminine?

 
I had a roll of blue and white toile paper that I got year's ago.
It's a little thicker than wrapping paper.
 I cut it to fit the inside of the frames-
I mod podged the trays with a couple coats and they dried overnight!
Pretty feminine trays for my dining room-
May I serve you please??
haha, gotta fly-Claire
