Vintage Trays

Good Morning.  It has been a little while since I have blogged about some of my creations.  It has been a busy summer so far and I have been doing some creating but I haven't just sat down and blogged about the projects and I do have to admit that I forget to take before pictures before I start getting busy.  It is a cool summer day for the month of July here in Michigan, 70 degrees is a little cool.  It's a good day to work outside, though.  Well, I do  a project to share with you and I did remember to take my before picture, so here goes....

I had gone to the Springfield Flea Market this spring with one of my daughters, Jessica and I had picked up these cute vintage trays. I loved the colors and I really liked the silhouettes of the man and the woman.  Green is my favorite color.
 I bought them and really had no idea what I wanted to do with them but I really liked them.  I also had picked up this little metal silver tray.
 I decided after a little bit of time to build another pedestal stand that could be displayed for jewelry or really for anything.  In the before picture I gathered up some supplies like an old candle stick and a miniature clay flower pot and  painted them black along with the little silver tray that I had bought.  I put them together with a little E6000 glue (which I love, it glues almost anything together) and waited til they dried and stayed together.
 And this is my creation.  I think it goes quite will with my old dresser and it would be a fun piece to store my jewelry on.
 On the bottom of last tray I had painted some wooden round balls and also glued them on to the bottom of the tray.  I didn't want the stand to just set on the table and I wanted a little height to the piece.

 So, what do you think? Like or not?  It can be used for so many things and it is a fun piece to look.

So, until next time, Dianne.........
