I love using trays all over the house. They are the perfect quick and easy fix to a boring table or counter. A friend and I found these trays for her house at the local thrift store and got them for $5 for both.
While we were getting set up to paint, I grabbed an old candlestick from the house that I have been wanting to do something with and threw it out there to be painted too.
So a little spray paint, distressing and/or antiquing glaze later and here you have it...
I tried the smaller tray in a few places throughout the house trying to find the perfect spot for it. I kept thinking of great uses for it! And then I remembered it is not staying here but going to live in my friend's house...BOO! So now I need to go back to the thrift store and find some more I can keep!
And here is how the candlestick turned out. Nicely, I think.
