Happy Friday to you all! We finally have some much appreciated sun and dry weather here in Michigan.
This Parisian themed one is a shadow box style tray (you can't really see the handles in this photo), that I bought several years ago from Current catalog. The only finish it came in was a dark cherry, and since I prefer lighter woods, it sat in a corner gathering dust for years. Every time I walked by it I felt guilty! Why did I buy it?! Why don't I do something with it?? So finally, I painted her my favorite creamy white and distressed her a bit. This was before I met Ralph (as in Lauren. As in antiquing glaze!), or I certainly would've used it on this project! Anyway, I used scrap booking supplies and a reproduction French postcard, and now I love it! The neat thing about this tray is that you can easily change it out. I made a fun display for Christmas last year. This would be so easy to do with a pretty picture frame, too!
I also showed you this last one before, in our living room. Bought several years ago at a moving sale for next to nothing! I just love the floral design!
Why not add a little tray chic to your home??!
Well, ladies, I hope that you all have a great weekend! I am hoping to find a few good yard sales this weekend. You never know what you might find..............
Welcome to my blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!
