Nautical Wedding Tray

6:00:00 AM

My soon-to-be new neice is in love with the beach and 
a beautiful coastal wedding is planned...

The invitations are out and the shower is in a couple of days...

I decided to make a nautical tray for one of her shower gifts.

I'm using her Wedding invitation and an old white chippy tray.
The first coat was off white and the top coat was pure white,
this gave the distressing a layered effect.

Dings and paint drips were on purpose to add character...

I began by roughly painting an old tray, then 
sanding the daylights out of it to give it that old sea inspired look...

Using Modge Podge, I glued the invitation, 
seahorses, and a starfish pictures to the tray... 

I let it dry, 
sanded it a little more because it can't be distressed enough...

Then gave the tray several coats of Triple Thick to seal the deal.
Triple Thick seals the tray with a hard, shiny, non-yellowing, 
protective finish.

I added jute to the handles for some nautical love...

I know you love your nautical look so I hope you'll love your tray Kim and Andrew!

Much Happiness!
