Another Tray Revamp Using Wallpaper

I purchased this plain brown tray from Goodwill for $1.99.

I went to my wallpaper supply and found some pretty paper that matched up with the color of the tray and Mod Podged the paper around the outside edges and in the bottom.
I was not happy with the white backing of the paper showing around the lip of the tray so I added some chestnut ink to finish it off.


This is after I applied the ink. Much better. I also added some very skinny ribbon to finish off the edges of the paper.








I tried to do some staging using the tray but could never quite get it right. Oh well, maybe somebody will buy it at the craft bazaar and do something fabulous with it.
