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?
