I used to use it as a tray for a houseplant, but it had gone unused for several years.
|What the tray looked like before painting. Good bones, but not usable condition.|
I kept looking at it and decided it had such great "bones" I would try my hand at giving it a little makeover.
I cleaned it up with a dry rag and found some old Krylon indoor/outdoor robin's egg blue spray paint I had in my garage. If you have something like this and it's really corroded, you may need to sand it with a very fine sand paper.
After one coat of paint, I could see a beautiful gift emerging!
|A few coats of spray paint brought it back to life!|
I love how it turned out! This would be the perfect addition to the gift for my sister-in-law's birthday!
|I ended up using a different, more colorful bouquet for her gift.|
At a garage sale a few months ago I purchased this pretty tea cup for $3.00. The jasmine tea was also also on sale for about $3.00. The vase I ended up using was free from a neighbor looking to get rid of it, and the flowers were from my yard.

What have you made-over lately?
