An Old Frame Becomes a New Tray

84K Views
It all started awhile back when I stopped at my go-to thrift store in my little corner of the world. I scored big on a few things including two of these frames which were $4 each. That’s a bit more than I usually pay for frames (really, Col?) but these are so pretty with so much detail and even though I don’t usually gravitate toward gold, I kinda liked it.

We used 1/4 sheet plywood to make the back and tacked it on with wood glue and finishing nails. Then I gave it a few coats of homemade chalk paint.

I decided to stencil a leaf pattern on the front with brown paint and then went over it with a gold paint pen. I also used the paint pen on the edges of the plywood because it was really light, almost white, wood to start with. The gold paint blends right in with the frame.

For the handles I lucked out!! I found a bag of these gold handles for $1.50 at the same thrift store I got the frames at. I have used them on a few projects (more posts to come). I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it PAYS to dig through the junk bins if you have time! The color is really too bright and very 80’s but spray paint does the trick. I had a much more dull gold that I sprayed them with and then rubbed on Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint with a cloth to tone it down and age it a bit.

I love it! It’s a bit more ornate than I usually like but it fits in my bedroom beautifully. It’s also big enough to put all my stuff on. :)
