Tray Makeover

This is a tray that I've had for years that my Mom painted the flag on it for me. I have been seeing on other blogs all these great looking trays that people are using, so I thought I would give this a makeover.
I painted it black and then dry brushed on some mustard yellow and then sanded it down lightly to let some of the blue show through. The above picture is how I decorated it for now. It is on the top of my washer. This is a pretty big tray and I am now on the lookout for a smaller one for my kitchen table. Please excuse the next picture...as I was arranging this tray dh came in and said he has the perfect thing to add to the arrangement..
I don't think so dear!!!!

I love your tray, but I also loved it before too. I love the way you accessorized it!
Have a great weekend!

Very nice makeover and I like the arrangement :)

I can totally sympathize because I think we have camo stuff lying all over the house. I also really LOVE the bow case sitting up against my antique dresser that our TV is on in the living room! @@ At least the silver tote with all the archery clothes isn't still sitting beside it! LOL

Have a great weekend!

Dh is great when picking out prim stuff at stores, yard sales, etc, but has no clue on decorating.

I love the boots; a touch of realism in our perfect prim world; tell him to watch out; them boots just might have a sweet annie and pumpkins arrangement in them next time he goes to use them; you know how we love to repurpose items; hey it was his idea after all; LOL
