Good morning peeps!
A dear friend of mine approached me with a beautiful but worn out wooden tray which was very special to her. This is how I salvaged the old tray into a new one!
To begin I smoothened the surface as much as I could using fine grain sand paper & then applied a layer of gesso. I wanted to give it a shabby & distressed look, so used a base coat of gray acrylic color. Once that dried I randomly rubbed the surface with a candle followed by Prima chalk paint. Once the pink dried I used sand paper to distress the color & out popped the gray from beneath!
Random stamping using archival ink completed the transformation! To finish I varnished the tray several times.

Now can you believe this was the tray that got a makeover!
