Mirrored Tray Transformation

I pick up mirrored trays all the time.

You know the ones.

I've had so many over the years.  I usually end up transforming them in some way.  Well, that's what I did to this one.

After distressing the silvering on the mirror, I decoupaged vintage rose paper to the back, and, painted the frame.

I think I'll do a few variations on some of the other ones I have.

See ya soon.

  6. Wow, your mirrored tray is just gorgeous, Rosemary! I see those trays all the time and have always been tempted to pick one up. I never would have thought to decoupage the roses, thank you for the inspiration:)

  7. Rosemary, LOVE, I wish I would have thought of that it is gorgeous. Is that just the mod podge method because I have a few mirror trays I would love to try this on with transfers.


  8. Really pretty! I like it better than with just a mirror. I have a few that I would love to try this on. Please, like everyone else said, details!!
