Soon To Be Transformed............

Hello Girls....

How is your week going so far?

Mine's been good. I've taken a few vacation days this week and am having myself a nice long 4 day weekend, and I won't be heading back to work until tomorrow. I've been so lazy the past few days and haven't really done much, but I do have plans to try and get something done today. A little transformation as I'd call it.

I found this adorable sturdy wicker tray a few weeks ago at an antique shop that just reopened in the area. Same dealers, but in a new location just a few blocks away from it's original spot which they had to close after another business in the building had a fire which caused extensive smoke and water damage.

I normally love a soft shade of yellow, but there is just something about the yellow coloring on this tray that is just not right. It's hard to see from these pictures what I'm talking about, but it has sort of a grayish tint to it and it just doesn't look right to me...

So, I will be giving it a little makeover, either today or sometime over the next few days to make it more to my liking. And, it won't be yellow when I'm finished with it.

Care to guess what color it will be when I'm finished?

Stay tuned to find out ............

Hi Kim, this is a really cute tray, and I can't wait to see what color you will paint it! I have a wicker basket that I found at a Garage sale a week ago, and I am just now getting ready to paint it pink! It's going to look scrumptious, and I know this wicker tray will too when you have it finished :)

Have a great day my friend!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Hi Kim!
What a pretty wicker basket tray, and it will come so handy I am sure!Can't wait to see the transformation...maybe a light aqua?

If it were mine, I'd paint it a pastel green and then add a pretty vine of flowers. I'm guessing you are going with pink, though, which will be very pretty, too. It's such a great tray that the color won't matter too much.

Fabulous tray! I'll guess pink, or a very soft green. White would be nice too!
