This is what I was up to this weekend. Some of you guessed it, and I really confused others of you, but I was fixing up a Goodwill tray. Last week I dropped off some stuff at Goodwill, and you know I couldn't pass up going inside and seeing what they had! Here is my $2 purchase...
1. Prep work - sand, clean, prime and base coat 2. tape off area for accent color
3. touch up 4. clear glaze coating 5. wait proper dry time (I forgot this last step, and had to go back to start)
I really wanted to add some more color into this room, but mainly I needed a home for my coasters besides in a drawer now that they look so darn pretty! I think the tray really adds a pop of color and ties in well with the tin art we have on our mantel.
For those of you wondering if we had a living room... we do! I'm sorry I have never posted pictures of this room before, but I couldn't figure out a good way of photographing it without showing you all of the padding around our hearth ;) Our fireplace is monstrous, and trying to photograph around it is no easy task. So in light of keeping it real I choose little mans noggin over pretty pictures.
