Flower tray – DIY

I had this white, very large, wood tray…
…I liked it but did not love it.  So what is a girl to do?
I had these floral wall stickers, bought in Ikea and placed them on the tray…
…and then I fetched some paint that I alredy had in my posession.  It´s a lovely grayish/brown sort of color…
…and I painted the whole tray and all the way to the rims, leaving just the outside in the original while color…
…I then removed the wall decals…
…and sanded the tray, to give it a weathered look….
…it was started to look better already 🙂
…and after placing my favorite lamp (also Ikea) on it….
…I have to say that I think they are a match made in heaven!
…Love seeing the floral pattern through the lamp!
…I also deceided to flip my runner upside down, and then the colors of the two were almost identical…
…and with the orchid on the table and the lovely lamp in the bacground, whats not to love?

    Tanks for sharing, a very nice work and clever! Love how the cake dish turned out so unique. Can you tell me, when you sprayed the candlestick and the plate did you spray it right on or did it need any preparation? And then – the spray you use, is it a regular spray?
    Thanks – takk – Ásta
