Shabby Chic Fleur De Lis Repurposed Tray

Take an ordinary tray bought at a thrift store and make it extraordinary. I needed a backdrop for one of my many iron fleur de lis home decor pieces. They are very heavy so I needed something substantial to put them on. This tray was perfect and the perfect size.

I spray painted it with Rustoleum 2x Paint and Primer in Heirloom White. Then I antiqued it using Valspar dark wax. I then sanded some of the paint off the edges and also added Antique Gold Rub n Buff to the edge of the tray and also to the fleur.

The piece de resistance was the little crown I added to fleur. I will try to sell this at our craft booth along with the easel. The easel matches so perfectly, that I didn’t want to separate the set.

It needed something special added so I added a CROWN.

HOPE YOU LIKE IT! Leave me a comment. If you have any ideas for my other iron fleur de lis let me know.

Endearing Pair of Bunnies, Repurposed Home Decor

Hi Everyone!

This cute pair of bunnies started their life as wooden rustic photo holders. Mom repurposed these to be bunnies after she repainted them gray. Keep reading for more info.

Wooden 2x6's with Burlap on top. They have ears made from thin wood.  Eyes are upholstery tacks and whiskers are made from curled wire.  The nose is a heart shaped piece of wood.
Started out as Photo Blocks

Mom put burlap on the front sides. She made ears out of thin wood and put burlap on them too. She painted the inside of the ears pink.

She made heart shaped button noses and wire whiskers. She made eyes out of brass tacks. She put a bow on top and Voila’. Done.

When you get tired of home decor change it up. Repurpose it. Refresh it into a different season.
