Hey there lovely Friends! It’s Thursday and one day closer to Spring break around here yay!! I always enjoy a few days with my boys without school routines. PJs till noon here we come.
Today I have another small makeover as I am looking for small pieces to add to my booth.
Here is what’s getting an update today:
I thought it was kind of cute and it was on clearance. You know how finding cute stuff at the thrift store AND on clearance makes my heart skip a beat.
I decided to give this tray crabs, er I mean a crab, just one:
That basket is still a favorite find. I want to say it was only around a dollar. I spray painted it with white primer and sanded it all over.
I’m always drawn to baskets for some reason. This one is filled with miscellaneous toy parts my son leaves around. I toss the loose little pieces in here.
This tray had a paper bottom, and I decided to just paint over it instead of trying to remove it. Then I decided it’s not really big enough to be much of a functional tray anyway, so why not add a hanger to the back and hang it.
I painted this in Behr’s Sparrow made into DIY chalk paint. (See recipe HERE.) It looks more blue here, but it is actually gray. Then I dry brushed it here and there with white paint and a VERY dry brush.
I added the graphics with my Silhouette Cameo.
A light sanding and a coat of Annie Sloans Clear Soft Wax finishes it off. I added a sawtooth hanger to the back to hang it.
I borrowed the beach sign from my boys’ bathroom. See how I made it without my Silhouette HERE.
You may remember today’s tray from this purchase I shared in another post not too long ago?
The other items I purchased with this tray have had their makeovers already.
I didn’t share the little trinket box in a post sine it was just a quick paint job, but you can see it in this cell phone pic of my booth here:
The vase has been used several times already…like here on my thrift store hutch:
It’s a perfectly petite size.
And you may remember what happened to that wooden box…
But if not, you can check it out HERE!
The tray was a small makeover, but it has a whole lot more personality now.
It would be a fun addition to a gallery wall or in a small wall space in a kitchen!
I’ll be back on Tuesday with my Trash-to-Treasure girls, my favorite! I’ll be sharing what I did with this rocking chair part I pulled out of my neighbor’s trash:
No shame here. 🙂
UPDATE: See what I made out of this “trash” HERE now!
Have a fantastic weekend!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
