I’ve abandoned my poor readers too often lately! Travel and to-Do list have made me set aside the blog for a few weeks. Again. But I’m ready to get back in groove and chat with my reader friends again.
It’s been forever since we had a Transformation Tuesday post, so this week, I’ll be featuring a couple of posts in a row featuring projects from reader mail.
This Transformation Tuesday project comes from Linn at The Home Project
. Sometimes, the simplest transformations are the best! She took this sort of tacky tray (my apologies to the state of New Mexico and the manufacturer of this souvenir platter if I have offended you).
Isn’t that pretty? Who knew it could be so awesome! Well, Linn did, obviously.
She says, “I wanted to share a smaller, more manageable project that anybody can do, even if you don’t have a lot of tools or supplies: transforming a metal tray with decoupage.
“I picked up this old metal tray at a thrift shop for $1.50 and bought some pretty paper at the craft store with matching paint for the sides. After doing just a little painting, cutting and gluing I have a brand new tray to use for organizing or carrying things!
I love small and doable projects like this that don’t take too long and that give instant satisfaction!”
I think I have some old serving trays around here somewhere that could use this transformation!
Thanks for the inspiration Linn.
