Sometimes you have to take a second look...

Seeing is not always believing... at least in the case of this beautiful cork tray.

We've all seen the cork trays on Pinterest made with the saved corks from all the wine we bloggers drink... 

Today I'm making a cork tray with scrapbook paper instead of real corks.... not that I don't have a lot of leftover corks... I do...  but I love the smooth look of the paper under glass.

This was the tray before... it had an old faded piece of fabric under the glass on the tray.

The first thing I did was to pull off the back of the tray, remove the glass, and then the pull off the fabric.

I painted the tray with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Old White then distressed the edges.

Using cork print scrapbook paper, I traced the glass onto the paper and cut it out to fit inside the tray.

The faux cork tray looks amazing... The paper is safely glued under the glass and looks like the real thing!  The best part is, you can clean the glass which makes it much easier than trying to clean the corks.
