check this out!

Just a quick post as I have plenty of holiday stuff to be doing today. I'm at the shop today enjoying the friendly visitors who stop in. Wanted to share a fun 'refurb' treatment I did quickly the other day.

This tray was once used for table service at some restraunt years ago. I found several so I am hoping to get more finished up very soon. I gave it a good cleaning and used Krylon brand chalkboard spray paint for the top. Giving it a couple coats insured it will hold up to that chalk abuse. :) The bottom was finished off in my fave, Oil Rubbed Bronze spray by Krylon too. Hubby was sweet and drilled me some holes for these metal handles I had on hand (another of my many salvaged hardware pieces). Here you have a festive serving tray!

Happy Holidays,

Unique Repurpose!

I wish I had taken a 'before' pic of the TWO pieces of shipping crates that wwere used for this creation. Just by stacking them (attaching with wood screws), adding sturdy castors and giving it a paint and distressed treatment we now have a VERY unique coffee table! I found an old advertising image online, I do not speak spanish but liked the wording so I used my overhead projector and strategically hand painted it on. Definetly one-of-a-kind.

*please excuse the off color, for some reason the brighter image refuses to darken to the 'true' color. It's rather an 'army green' color.
