$2 Flea Market Find Becomes a Serving Table for the Front Porch
While shopping at a local flea / antiques market, I came across an old jar filled with a beer cap collection. I loved the jumble of colors and wanted to do something with them. I had no idea what, but for $2 I'd figure something out. It came to me when I ran across an old tray in my pantry. No before pics of the tray, sorry, but I spray painted a pretty leaf green. Next step, something for a base. An odd TV dinner tray, (also stashed in the pantry) to the rescue. I removed the top and spray painted the base a pretty peacock blue / teal color.
Now for the fun part. I glued the beer cap collection in a random pattern over the base of the tray, and knew I had a winner. The last step will be to pour a thick polymer over all. Tah Dah! A new beverage server for the screened in porch.
My husband, wanting in on the action, attached the tray to the base for me.
This pic is a little fuzzy, but shows another angle.
