Take one old pine tray…….

Do you have something at home that you are dying to get stuck into with some paint to update it a little?? I have been looking at this old orange coloured pine tray for a while with the idea of stencilling numbers onto it but it has taken me about 6 months to complete!! Last weekend was really hot so I cranked up the air conditioner and worked away until it was finished. I am really pleased with it now but I’m trying to decide if I will sand it a little and shabby it up. Not sure yet…

I have an old pine hall table which I am thinking of giving a similar makeover. Maybe I will paint French script letters on that instead. I just hope it doesn’t take another six months to get that finished!!

The tray looks charming. What a great idea to bring new life to a tired old piece. I like the numbers but I could see sheet music with lyrics and notes as being very attractive too. Thank you for sharing.

You had me at numbers. What a great look!

Jann Olson said...

You've got my number. lol! I love numbers so this hit it out of the ball park for me. Love it! It took you a while because it was too hot. I have been repainting my bed for almost a month now. Some days I can't work on it out in the garage because it's too cold. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
Jann

Really liking this and plan on doing something similar with numbers and letter for the top of an old school teacher desk and paint the rest of it white.

Hugs, Lynnie
