Everyone else is posting Tablescapes, Holiday Decorating, New Years Eve plans, menu, etc. Me, a project! A craft!
In my archives you will see where I went 'thrifting' and found a silver plate tray. And promised to post more about that tray in the future. (Tray in the upper left.)
Thanksgiving 2008 I displayed my faux turkey, leaves and gourds in it.
Christmas 2008 I displayed my bisque nativity in it.
This year it has under gone a transformation.
Here you see my price tag. $2.48. And I think blue stickers were marked down that day.
You can see there are spots where the silver has come off and a little rust has set in.
Primed with what ever I had that needed to be used up.
Added the color I wanted and an additional coat...
Then added a couple of layers of Chalk paint.
I dropped some chalk paint on the edge. When I tried to clean it up, I got this effect. Loved it!!! Added it to the project. :-) Aren't mistakes great blessings!
Hey, Alabama won SEC Championship and is headed to the Nationals! Merry Christmas will have to wait until next year.
ROLL TIDE ROLL! One more week!
