Carried Away Again…

Ok, so I did a Pinterest project that I wasn’t so sure about the outcome and wanted to take another run at it… Which is just what I did!  I made this tray from some scrap fabric and a picture frame, but I didn’t really love the way it looked when I was finished.

I went back and reevaluated the final product, and decided that I didn’t like the way the fabric looked.  Now mind you I love the fabric and it is going to end up in my dining room in some manner, but not as part of this particular tray.  Once I decided what was bugging me, I set out to find an alternative…

I decided to go with something more personal and made a painted homage to our anniversary.

First I laid out the lettering (actually my Aunt Cindy did it for me, I was a bit busy).  Once I had a template, I traced the lettering with chalk onto my fabric.  Then I used some black fabric paint to go over the chalk.

After the paint was dry, I cut the fabric to size to put it into the frame I had already turned into a tray.

Then I actually put it into the frame and sealed the back, so there wouldn’t be any loose strings.

So, this is the new picture frame tray, what do you think?
