Remember this tray?
The one I bought for $18.00? (Ouch) I planned to use it on this table, but didn't like how it looked.
This is what it looks like now....
I plan to somehow hang it on the backporch. I don't know how I'm going to do that yet.
First, I painted the entire thing blue, and then blocked in the areas I wanted to paint.
I began with the leaves and branch, then moved on to the dogwood blooms.
Finally, I worked on the bird.
So, here is a photo that shows how large this tray actually is. It's sitting in SR's large recliner.
I want to coat it with a sealer, simply to make sure it weathers well. It will be under the porch roof, but you can't be too careful. After all the work, I sure wouldn't want it to peel off.
I'm lovin' this a lot. And since it had been a while since I painted anything, I enjoyed the process.
