cafe au lait tray!


picked up this plain old tray....but could see it's potential



(see, I almost forgot the before photo again!!)


  




gave it a couple coats of white paint and shabbied the edges




love how the white paint shows up the "TEA" and "CAFE"



but it needed a little something

so...

I took some vintage sheet music and modpodged it to the inside of the tray (a little wrinkly but that adds character, right!)




added a vintage french graphic from The Graphics Fairy




and now it's so much more interesting



I'm still thinking about staining it up a little, but for now...

coffee anyone??




I'm linking up to White Wednesday at Faded Charm
happy days,
Tracey

Well done Tracey, I love how you have transformed that tray. I really like the idea of using the music sheet. It looks lovely. xx

Hi Tracey,

Sheet music is so versatile, isn't it? I agree, the wrinkles and any age spotting just add to the character. Your project came out so well!

Love the transformation! It looked great just painted white, but I love the addition of the sheet music and the little graphic. Perfect for serving tea, or breakfast in bed!
Happy White Wednesday!

I did a post today on ModPodge and included this darling project. I'm crazy for trays lately and love yours.

Not really sure if you used ModPodge or not ;) but still wanted to let you know.

Have a wonderful weekend!
