Woven Nautical Tray

6:01:00 PM

This is exactly the kind of tray that might get overlooked 
at the thrift store. It was brown, stained, and pretty ugly.

But I saw the potential... 

I knew with a quick coat of chalk paint, 
this old wicker tray could have a new life...

It looked a little coastal to me, a perfect summer tray...

The extra large size was particularly appealing...

It just screamed summer to me...

I'm really glad I took a second look at this great find!

  1. You're right! That wicker does scream summer to me.

  2. Very lovely! Did you use a homemade chalk paint recipe, or did you use brand name paint? Either way, it turned out beautifully summery!
