diy-vintage-frame-tray-1-e1287169082153MOM Tip: This could be a fun Do It Yourself project for any upcoming holidays parties to serve food or as a hostess gift.

Repurpose an old picture frame as a serving tray.

Directions from Camp Granma:

Step 1. head on out to your local thrift store and look for the ugliest frames you can find. The ones you’d never in a million years put in your house. Metal, wood it doesn’t matter just make sure they have a lot of detail.

Step 2. on the way home hit your local hardware store and purchase a can (or two or three depending on your needs) of spray paint in whatever colour you’d like. This is the fun part as there are so many fun colors to choose from now like watermelon or pistachio.
Step 3. once you’re home remove the backing and glass from your frames and set aside.
Step 4. using a very fine sandpaper give your wood frames a little sanding (you won’t need to do this to metal frames).
Step 5. in a well ventilated area spray your frames with the paint to your hearts content. Spray from a few inches away and use a sweeping motion. It’s better to have to go over the frames multiple times than to create drips from too much paint.
Step 6. When the frames are dry you’ve got a few options. You can either put just the clear glass back in or you can put coordinating fabric or scrapbook paper inside (under the glass) for an added touch of fun.
