Do you have an old frame that needs a makeover?  Or perhaps a you have one that you came across at a thrift store or garage sale that you love, but aren’t sure what to do with?  I have a solution for you…one that won’t you take long, but that will give it a whole new look and purpose!!!

I absolutely love turning frame into trays!  They’re darling used as an actual tray, or as a base for a pitcher of flowers, like I have in the picture above.  It’s seriously so easy, and you all know I’m about simple and inexpensive ideas!

I love the idea of chalkboard paint on a tray…leaving cute messages on it when you’re delivering breakfast in bed, or as part of your decor for the current holiday or season. Contrasting paint colors to match your decor is also a fun idea!

{supplies}

-frame, with glass intact OR piece of wood to fit opening

– spray paint

-chalkboard paint or second paint color

-two cabinet handles

-drill and screws to fit handles

{directions}

1.  Remove the glass from the frame.  Paint your frame the color you like, and let dry completely.  I distressed mine a little to show the original black frame through the paint.

2. You can do two different things on this next part. You can either paint the glass using chalkboard paint (which I did)  or a second paint color, OR you can cut a piece of thin mdf (1/8 or 1/4) to fit the opening, and paint that instead.  Once it’s completely dry, place the wood or glass back in the frame.

3.  Using your drill, screw the handles into place, one on each of the shorter sides of the frame.

THAT’S IT!!!  I told you it was easy!
