Repurposed Picture Frame Serving Tray {Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge}

Leave a Comment
I'm so excited to bring you this Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge! I've teamed up with 20 other bloggers for this thrift store blog hop. The rules were simple--take an item(s) from a thrift store, yard sale, resale shop etc. and transform it into a new piece of home decor. There was no budget, or theme to stick to so we were free to let our creativity run wild!

For my project, I decided to try a new spin on an idea I've worked with before. You might remember my upcycled driftwood serving tray from a few months back - this time, I decided to give it a fun, farmhouse twist!

I started with a plain wooden picture frame from the thrift store. Pardon the puppy in the background :)


I spray painted it with my favorite white from Rustoleum, using petroleum jelly as a resist to create some chippiness


I also added a pair of handles from D. Lawless Hardware, spray painted in Oil Rubbed Bronze


I added a farmhouse-inspired graphic on the glass from the frame, using a stencil from Angie at Knick of Time. Lastly, I layere some blue striped ticking fabric under the glass and secured a piece of hardboard to the back of the frame to hold everything together.


Here's the final result!




I love pulling together a few simple elements into something new and useful!
