I got this antique frame at a flea market. The seller told me it came out of an old southern mansion in the city that was being restored. I thought it looked so ugly as it stood, but saw the potential in it as a vanity tray and knew it would look great in my Etsy shop. I bought it, sanded it down really well, gave it 2 coats of primer, and then applied a metal pewter finish paint on it.
I also got this really pretty decorative leather print type paper at Michaels for it.
Here it is all done up and accessorised with makeup, jewelry, and perfume. I love finding old frames and upcycling them into something new.
Head over to my Etsy shop to see another tray and other newly listed items.
