Woven Nautical Tray6:18:00 AM
In the summer I love all things nautical...
it comes from living near the beach.
This woven thrift store tray with a coat of
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Old White and dry brushed with Pure White just screamed beachy to me.
I used a product called Omni Gel which I
used once before to add a transfer to a galvanized steel pitcher...
I printed out an image on a laser printer...
no need to flip the image, I coated the top of the paper with 2
heavy coats of Omni Gel. One coat going in one
direction, let it dry, and the 2nd coat in the other direction.
When the paper was completely dry I cut out the image
and ran it under water. I laid the image face down on a
piece of waxed paper and rubbed off the paper backing.
I was left with a rubbery image. It has a slightly hazy
look so I find it works best on a light background.
I placed the image into the center of my tray then
used a toothbrush to push the decal into the texture.
I coated the entire bottom of the tray with
I've used this product before on this table drawer liner
and it works great!
In the morning when I woke up I was pleased to find that
when the image dried completely it looked fantastic!
This extra large tray is now a nautical treasure!
These products are worth a try...
