Rose Gold Christmas Serving Tray

       I'm stepping out of my comfort zone today.

I'm usually a white, rustic, farmhouse kind of girl.

But today I'm trying something new!

While I still built this project in my workshop with rustic, reclaimed wood, I'm giving it a new more modern style with a new metallic paint.

I began by using a piece of reclaimed wood that had a very shiny side.

I painted on a coat of Ultra Grip to be sure my paint would stick properly to this tray. 

I added feet which are actually candle cups using wood glue and screws. 

When the Ultra Grip dried I gave my tray a couple coats of Rose Gold. 

Next I added just the trees from the "Christmas Tree" stencil by Old Sign Stencils. I love how you can use all or just part of these great stencils.

I used a pouncer to apply the paint and did a few light coats of Bronze metallic, also by Fusion Mineral Paint. 

When I was almost finished I decided as an after thought that my tray needed sides.

I cut thin trim wood and added it to the sides then painted the sides to match the tray. 

I added brushed handles to the tray that were perfect for this shimmering beauty!

I waxed the whole tray with a Rose Gold metallic shimmer wax by Fusion Mineral Paint for protection. It sure keeps that metallic shine going!

I stepped out of my comfort zone on this project and I'm glad I did! 

The rose gold paint is gorgeous, the stencil is my favorite so far and this project was fun to make!

I created using this stencil. 

I already have 2 daughters itching to get their hands on this one!
