A Before and After...Jewelry Tray

After several mornings of searching the floor next to my nightstand for a missing earring, I decided that I really needed to find something to keep my earrings and other daily jewelry in. I was thinking a pretty dish or something of the sort when I spotted this 
and I had an idea!

It was the perfect small size and the perfect price!

Oh Yeah!

I snapped it up, brought it home and sprayed it with a coat of primer.

Then I found my friend, Fusion

If you have seen my Mirror, Mirror post, you may realize that I  have a love affair with plastic and spray paint made for plastic!

After two coats of paint I assembled my work station (located conveniently on my coffee table in front of my televison.)  I know, I'm fancy like that! :)

While I watched some of my favorite shows I went to town cutting out little squares that I then decoupaged onto my tray.  I just placed the squares into a pattern that I liked with some Mod Podge then I did two coats of Mod Podge over the surface and.....


I really love that word, ta-da!  There just aren't enough occasions for me to use it in every day life!

      Here they are side by side.  I did the work and I can hardly believe   they are the same tray! :) 

So, can you guess what colors I am redecorating my bedroom in?  Am I too old for a black and pink bedroom? Wait, don't answer that,  I don't want to know!  Black and pink it is! :)

Thank you for stopping by, and have a wonderful week! :)

I'm sharing this project with these great sites! Thank you ladies! :)
