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.
