I'm more than amazed each week at the grand metamorphasis projects going on in many of your homes and what's even more amazing - lots of you do them yourselves! -- well I'm just not in that league at all, so today I'll show a couple of little minor "tweaks" from my house this weekend.
You may remember the bed tray I was thrilled to find a couple of weeks ago -- it was bit more shabby than chic.
So I brought out the sprucing up tools - First I spray painted the whole tray in the famous "heirloom white". Then, I had a small bit of wrapping paper left over from a roll I used to keep on hand from Hallmark -- until they stopped making it. I knew that I wanted to use that last bit for something special. So I cut it to size and used the adhesive spray to glue it to the top of the tray. Then I added a few dragonflies and bees to the flowers and sprayed the top with a clear glaze. I wasn't quite sure that would be substantial enough for the serving tray, so I also had a piece of plexiglass cut to fit snugly on the top.
And underneath is this board that is supposed to raise at an angle so you can prop a book or write on this part. Unfortunately, the metal stand is missing, but hopefully that can be fixed one day. I cut out a few roses from the last of my saved paper and glued it on and glazed it. I'll be doing a trayscape soon with this.
