Getting off to a rather slow start with Christmas decorating this year. There's nothing like being under the weather to suck the Christmas spirit right out of you. But, I did manage to get a couple of these cute little trays painted for the store. They started out as black, but I decided to paint of few of them to give the customers some choices.
I love the dainty scrolls on this little tray giving it
a sweet and delicate look.
The first one I painted a sage green, but since I filled it with so much greenery,
you can hardly see the tray.
The next one I painted off-white. After painting all of these trays, I waxed them with a mixture of clear and dark wax to give them a more aged look
and protective finish.
Last, but not least, is a red version for the holidays.
