Baking Sheet Into Serving Tray: a FREE Transformation

$0
25 Minutes
Easy

What is better than repurposing materials you've already got into something even better than before? Not much!
That is exactly what I did when I turned my old, stained cookie sheet into a beautiful, chippy serving tray for my guest bedroom.
Gold leaf turned this sheet from drab to fab, and now I've got a custom piece of decor to make my guest bedroom just a little more special for our visitors.
Can you believe this project was totally FREE?!
It took me less than half an hour to complete this transformation, and now I have a completely unique serving tray that is just as pretty as anything you'd buy in a store.
So the next time you are consider tossing one of your old baking sheets, think again! You may just be able to turn it into something both beautiful and practical!

Thank you!

    What happens when it gets washed?

      A tray like this would be dusted with a soft cloth, possibly never washed. but if something were spilled on it, a gentle wash in warm water would be worth a try. If a section gets rubbed off, you could use another sheet or strip of gold leaf to repair it. Best wishes 😇

    I want to know how they did this?: any ideas? The coloring is what I am looking for, can you tell if it is paint?
