You may remember a tray that I showed you a few weeks ago that I picked up at a yard sale. She was pretty boring, but I just knew that with a little paint and decoupage, she would have a great future! Well, I thought I would show you the "after" first, so, ta da!!
I loved the neat vintage French advertising label that I used on that tray so much, that I wanted to use it again on this project. I got the image from The Graphics Fairy, which is where I get the inspirations for so many of my projects. Be sure to check her out if you've never visited, as she has some awesome graphics! I didn't want the background of the graphic to be stark white, so rather than using regular white printer paper, I printed it on ivory resume paper. I then got out my trusty Mod Podge & gave her several coats (three, to be exact!), letting dry between each coat.
In the other aqua tray that I mentioned, I added cute little polka dots around the edges, so I decided to do the same for this tray, using cream colored craft paint. I think the dots add a touch of whimsy & fun!
I am linking up with these great parties. Be sure to check them out!

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!
