Enamel Pot Lid To Farmhouse Tray
Sometimes when you have a good thing going you just have to roll with it! This quick project is just a reinvention of a similar project I did a while back, but the idea is so great I have to keep it going!
While I was thrifting in one of my favorite little towns, Junction, Texas I found this sad little enamel pot lid without it’s pot. For $1 I couldn’t pass it up. You guys should be catching on by now…if it costs $1 I usually scoop it! If you are new here and want to see all the easy projects I share, join the e-mail list…I would LOVE to have you!It was dented and rusty and blue, which is not a color I use a lot in my house, but if you do you could eliminate the first step! I took this little guys out for a fresh all over coat of high gloss black spray paint. (DIY for those décor spheres here!)While the paint was drying I stained four wooden doll heads. I’m still working out of a plastic bag full of doll heads and wooden beads I got last year for a few bucks at a garage sale!
Once everything was dry I married the newly stained doll head “feet” to the bottom of my spray painted enamel lid for the fasted farmhouse tray DIY you’ve ever seen! My favorite glues for projects like this are either this or this (affiliate links). You can see it’s little handle sticking out if you get at the right angle 🙂 Used as a centerpiece, inside or out this handy little decorating tray is large, versatile and stylish. So what do you think? Any oldies in your kitchen cupboard that could stand to have some new feet? How would you use this tray?
