Regal Upcycle For A Thrift Shop Serving Tray


 I found this tray last week at the thrift shop for $4.

I was attracted to the floral carvings on the tray ends.

 I washed the tray with hot soapy Dawn Dish Soap water and also used a little Krud Kutter Degreaser Spray.

Then I painted the tray with a couple coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Caviar.

I lightly distressed the tray with 220 grit sandpaper. 

I have always wanted a crown stencil and I found this little one at Maison De Stencils.  I pounced and swirled on the stencil with Rust-Oleum Metallic Accents Paint in Soft Gold.

I waxed the tray with Dixie Belle Big Mama's Butta. 

I used a wax brush and a fiber rag to apply the wax.

As usual, I wasn't thinking of using it as a SERVING TRAY.  I like it as a decor piece.

I love the rich black color of Dixie Belle's Caviar.

I also thought the tray would look great hanging on the wall.

Maybe over a doorway with a plate hanger or with sawtooth hangers on the back?
