Picture turned Beach Tray

Did you notice something different? 
Look at this blog!

Finally! Yes I finally changed the blog up a bit. What do you think? 
I would really love to hear your opinions. It is a work in progress. I guess as time goes on I will have more changes but for now I think it is much brighter! Thanks honey!

What a perfect time for a change as I celebrate 400 of the best followers a girl can have! I am always blown away by your comments! I especially have been blown away by the comments left on my Audrey Hepburn Dresser! Thanks to you all! Some I couldn't respond to because you are set up as no-reply but please know how much your comments mean to me. They really made my day!

 I purchased this beach picture because I really loved the frame. When I brought it home and laid it on the table I got the idea to make it into a tray instead of hanging it on the wall.

So I got out the paint to paint the dark wood brighter with more of a wash effect over it.

I added blue first, then gesso.
It needed handles but I did not want to go with regular hardware. I purchased some leather straping.

Measured and cut it to fit. I used tacks to nail it in to give it that casual beach look.

Added some objects to the tray

Love changing it up!

Makes the perfect tray!

Oh and I can't leave with out posting these pictures of my "KIDS"!
Did anybody say Harry Potter Premier? These are hysterical!

Always so goofy!

Thanks to Coffee & Their Kisses for featuring my Audrey Hepburn Dresser!

My 13 year old daughter was so mad that I didn't let her go to the 'real' premiere last night!!! She recovered from her disappointment and got about 8 friends to go tonight together and pretend it is the premiere!!! lol I just couldn't do the 12 to 3 am thing. lol Love the tray!!!
