Remember a couple of weeks ago I got these? I put down the sewing needles and picked up a power saw and a few other tools instead!
.....with a bit of work I have turned one of the frames into a lovely tray to display items on my coffee table.
I even had a lesson or two with power tools........lucky for me hubby has a very well stocked shed.
Cutting the boards for the base.
Unfortunately it seems I deleted the photos of painting the frame and boards from my camera accidentally but you can see how I finished it anyway.
I painted it with my home made chalk paint, and used a little blue paint to add just a hint of colour, followed by some soft furniture wax. I still need to get a couple of handles for the ends and I will be able to call it finished.
I have different plans for the other frame and can't wait to start on it. Had a marvellous time doing this one and gained a few new skills.......if you could call it that as I did have hubby on hand if I needed him.
Happy crafting .........
