Recently we were challenged by Rust-Oleum to create an upcycle project using a variety of paint products that they sent to us. We created two upcycle projects for the challenge--one to enter into a blogger contest and this one just for fun!
The goal was to upcycle something from "found" objects. For the tray we used an old vintage frame, backing from an old desk, and a pair of vintage drawer pulls. Take a look at how it all came together.
Even though this tray is made with "found" vintage items, it can also be made with new materials. The mirror paint also comes in silver so you can make a tray with a mercury glass effect too. This is a project that lends itself to creativity.
What would your tray look like? Would you use it as a dry erase board? #TryLearnShare
Please note: We are not sponsored by Rust-Oleum. We were given some of the Rust-Oleum products to try out. All thoughts and options are our own and based on our experience.
FYI: We are not professionals, and we don’t claim to be. This is what we found worked for our project. Yours may need a little different approach. Safety first!
