Picture Frame Tray-3 Ways!

I've been wanting to make a tray out of a picture frame for quite some time now. I've seen this done before; as a decor item and as a serving tray and wanted to see how one would turn out.  And while thinking about what I'd do with it once done I came up with a 3rd use!
First thing to do....go to the Goodwill store and buy a $2 frame.
Other supplies:
paint and brush
decorative paper
tape

Not sure how old this is, it has some chips which is fine since I painted it.


Cut paper to be just a little bit bigger than picture back.  I used a treat sack I got on sale at Hobby Lobby after Valentine's.


Tape paper, kinda wrapped back like a present.


Paint.





Waala!!!

Use #1 Decorative centerpiece:


 

Use #2 Serving Tray:



Use #3 Perfume Display:


So easy!  I have another frame I bought as well.  Now what to do with it...........

Oh, I love the red and black--two of my favorite colors. I think almost any frame should be black. Love it! I really love the first way you used the frame, but they are all really beautiful!

Jennifer said...

Thanks Chiara! I have a lot of red and black in the house right now!

Well first of all I can't believe you got that FAB frame at goodwill for $2! That would of been $8-$10 at our goodwill! Love this cool project. And thanks for showing different ways to use the tray. Thanks so much for linking up to Terrific Under Ten!
