Hi there and welcome to Day #10 in this fun thrifty makeover series!
Today’s makeover is pretty quick and simple. I started with this tray I found at the thrift store for $2:
Can’t pass up a perfectly good wooden whatever-this-is, right? There wasn’t much to it, but I figured I could make something out of it.
To me it looked like it could be a small drawer if it had a knob, so I gave it the feel of a repurposed drawer:
Here it is in my dining room hutch holding a few ironstone pieces.
I gave this a coat of Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint first. (It’s what I had on hand.) It allows the darker color to show through after sanding instead of new wood.
The feet were in a bin of lamp parts my dad passed along to me. He used to use them in the neck of lamps he once made. They’re not too shabby as feet for this tray! I used E6000 Glue to attach them.
The best part? The inside! I Mod Podged pretty green paper in the bottom…
Here I used it as a place to display some favorite jewelry pieces:
The possibilities are endless. 🙂
These posts are really making me ready for yard sale season, how about you??
