Each week, I plan to bring you some kind of DIY inspiration, perhaps with a tutorial or just with a project that I worked on. I hope you enjoy and if I miss a week or two, I hope you’ll have grace and perhaps send me a friendly email reminding me you’d like to hear from me soon.
I’ve had this tray for ages and found it as I was cleaning out the front room in our house. I intended to get glass cut then and make a cute serving tray for Valentine’s day. I already had the vintage valentines (my grandma got them for me. MAJOR SCORE, right?!) mod-podged to cardstock the size of the tray. When I found the tray a few days ago, I measured the perimeter and got glass cut at Lowe’s. I also picked up some cream spray paint. Now, recommended temps for spray painting are around 65 degrees and it was 41 degrees here today. I was just too anxious, so I went ahead and did it. Seems fine to me!
Before, I just laid purchased glass on top to make sure it fit.
The owls were a bonus. I thought they’d look great in cream too. I used Valspar spray paint.
Viola! Easy project just in time for Valentine’s Day!
Finished product! And I like that owl much better in my kitchen now too!
