I had a very quiet and relaxing day yesterday and am feeling much better today. Which is great because today is market day. I am taking a few of my Vintage and Upcycled Wares to a local market. It is more about getting out with crafty like minded people and doing a little market research for my business case study than making any dollars but if I cover costs then I will be a happy girl.
Quiet some time ago I purchased this brown metal tray with a drab decoupage bottom. I'm not sure if you remember? Anyway it took me forever to remove the glue and paper from the base - even using the trusty old eucalyptus oil - But I got there in the end.
I gave it a few coats of white gloss paint and gave it a lovely fabric bottom. I roughed up the paint just a little and Voila. It is transformed.
It is one of the pieces I am taking with me today. I wonder if it will find a new home ? I won't be sad if it doesn't - I'm sure I can find a spot for it somewhere .............
So I'm off now to have some breakfast and to pack the car for my little adventure. I hope you enjoy your day whatever you choose to do.
Tray turned out lovely. Well worth it.
Good luck, Fee. Hope you do really well and have heaps of fun too.
Wish I could come to the markets.....I would have to work some extra shifts to pay for all the goodies I came home with. All gorgeous.
