30 Days of Repurposed Projects - Day 4 - Hand Painted Tray:
I really like how this one turned out!
I started with a wicker tray - no one bought it for $2 at my sale. I wiped it down and painted it with an off white acrylic.
Once dry, take a piece of chalk and write your word - mine was joy.
Paint right over the chalk; once dry, wipe off the visable chalk lines. I added a simple vine - if you can paint an oval, you can do this too - really easy!
I then brushed on the gel stain and wiped it off. Once dry, I wiped the whole tray with a paste wax.
This will be at the Vintage & Handmade Christmas Pop Up Sale here at the farm on December 12, 2014 6-9 p.m. I think I will mark it $10.
Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
