New Tray!

This weekend I attempted to spiffify ( huh, really, I just wrote that?) that tray from the entryway. Read about that here.

This is the tray:

I painted it a glossy bright white as step 1.

 I thought it was definitely a nice breath of fresh air, but I took it one step further! I had bought some pretty decorative papers the other day at Michael's. (4 bucks for 60 papers! How awesome is that!?)

I papered the back of the tray first, just to make sure I wasn't going to totally mess it up!

 And here is the front of the tray! It looks a little off center but I think that's just the photo

Just a little something extra! I am sharing at Debbie Doos Newbie party and Polly Want a Crafter today.


  1. looks great! another blogger I know tried this and put a piece of clear mat on top so she could set drinks on it. not sure what clear mat is, but I'm sure you could find it at hobby lobby or home depot.

  2. Your tray looks great! I saw your link at Debbie's Newbie Party. I have a link there, too. Mine is #92. Come visit!

  3. it looks great, amy! i love that you practiced on the back. :)

  4. What a great idea! Very fun and fresh looking now. Thanks for sharing with my newbie party!

  5. Looks great, honey. I like the paper.
