dresser makeover. I could use the tray on the living room coffee table but it would be too matchy-matchy.
A week before I painted the tray, I had picked this fine gift wrapping paper in Moroccan print at Paper Source. I saw this and was very confident the color matched the paint I had decided for the tray. It was $6.50 for a 20x30 size.
When I came home, I held this paper against the dresser and it matched spot-on. (I did not click the pic with the dresser).
I had picked this brass bowl from a vintage shop couple of years ago on the way from Disneyland in LA. It was a lonely shop on the stretch of now where and Mr. did not want to stop since there was only one vehicle outside the store. I made him turn around and take me there....(I told him I had to visit the ladies room, he knew I was lying through my teeth).
Inside, the store looked very creepy and was run by an elderly lady. She did have such awesome stuff but I just picked this bowl, paid $3 and dashed out. I need to stop watching too many horror flicks.
How much did I spend for this makeover?
Paint: I had. (A 16 oz sample size would be more than enough for this project)
Paper: $6.50 (I still have more than half left): $3
Acrylic Sheet: $15 (I used the left over sheet for 3 more trays) : $4
Brush: I had.
What do you think about this tweak?
Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
