Thrift Find~Wooden Candle Trays

My lovely Momma who is a thrifting expert (tee hee) brought me home these two gems. Oh yeah...it didn't take long to decide that they needed a shabby chic face lift.
So here is what I started with:

One was dark smoky blue and the other was dark green. I washed the dust off them and painted them both with Burnt Umber craft paint. I top coated the smaller tray with Desert Turquoise craft paint and the larger one with SW's Divine White. Once dry, I used my Dremel tool to sand the edges, hand sanded the rest with medium grit paper and then distressed with Walnut Distress Ink.

Here they are NOW:

(yep...repeat offender...can't help it...I{LOVE} that darn pencil starfish)

These thrift finds were turned into treasures...
to be sold, gifted, or kept. =)

    Trays are a must-have item in every house – whether it is something to serve food and drinks to your guests on, to keep your jewellery on, or simply as a decorative coffee table item. However, while they are extremely useful, their aesthetic value, and ability to transform a room, is often forgotten. At RANGRAGE, we have all kinds of trays to suit every taste and budget, so why not check out the range today? You are sure to be amazed by the range of colours, shapes and designs, with everything from floral to ultra-sophisticated portrait designs.
