How to DIY a Fleur de Lis Tray

In case you're not convinced yet, here is a little more magic with the Annie Sloan Paint




Take an ordinary wooden tray...
Give it a coat of Old White chalk paint 

This tray had a very shiny surface but after only 2 coats it looks like this, and it dries in a flash.



Sand and distress...

very pretty!




Paint on a Fleur de Lis design.





And the old brown tray has a brand new life!




Love this paint, it makes it so easy!
