such a long , long time since I last posted anything in my little blog . I really
missed it and you!!.
back with yet another idea for an easy craft.
You know I
have been recently a bit addicted to chalk paint and have tried it on a variety
of items. Among other things I’ve painted,
is this old and very indifferent tray
that I’ve had for some years , featuring starfish, sea shells and pebbles. I have been using it and hating it daily and I
had to transform it or do away with it!
After using two coats of chalk paint the starfish were gone and the tray acquired a lovely matt finish in a soft shade of grey – brown.
I used one of my favourite paper napkins inspired by art nouveau in Paris, decoupage glue, varnish and acrylic paints in black, light brown and silver and……… this is the outcome!
I have already used my ‘new’ tray for some stylish coffee drinking and I’m quite pleased with it.
I hope you liked the idea and that you try transforming items that you have in your house and you are not pleased with. Don’t throw things away , just give them a new life ( when this is possible).
Take care dear readers and enjoy this new week. February will soon be here and we will be some steps closer to Spring !!!
