Hello Hello :)
Today I would like to share with you a project that I really had a lot of fun with. For this brief of What is Old is New Again I went Op-Shopping and found an interesting wood tray, and as soon as I saw it I knew exactly how I wanted to 'make it over' using the fabulous StencilGirl stencils. The end product will be used as a home decor item and I plan on hanging it on my the wall in my creative space.
Here are a couple of before photos.
And here is the after photo. I have used colors to coordinate with my creative space theme of black, white and red. I will be hanging this tray on the wall with a group of paintings with this same color theme.:)
I used the 'Speckles and Spots' stencil designed by the fabulous Carolyn Dube to make over my tray :) :) :)
- To begin with, I removed the plastic decoration and the label on the bottom and cleaned up the tray just with a wet wipe.
- I painted the tray with 2 coats of red acrylic paint. I chose red as it coordinates with the decor of my creative space.
- When the paint was dry I used the 'Speckles and Spots' stencil, designed by the fabulous Carolyn Dube, to trace the circle pattern onto the bottom of the tray.
- I then went over the 'Speckles and Spots' circles with a black Posca paint pen and then filled the circles with a basic line and circle pattern.
- When I finished the tray with a coat of black acrylic paint around the edge I applied a spray sealer coat.
Here are some close-up images of the finished project.
I do hope you have enjoyed this quick and easy 'makeover' of a wood tray.
Cheers and Happy StencilGirl Stenciling!
