If you saw this post yesterday you already know I have a love for leopard!
Another love - IKEA!
Combine the two and you've got my transformation of a
$2.99 clear plastic IKEA tray...
Original IKEA Tray - 14 x 20
Taping off for painting. Here's my tip for making an exact pattern of any curve
you're working with. I took two pieces of tape and lightly taped them to my table, then
traced my curve at the base of the tray. Remove the tape and cut inside the traced line.
Another love - spray paint!
Notice anything else in the works, it will be making a debut
next week when I reveal my 'pops of pink' post!
If you're in the dark about that, you can get the scoop here.
This was my original plan for the tray...
this thick, heavily textured pink paper was in the scrapbook paper section at Hobby Lobby.
I'm doing something else with it...it's a surprise! :)
Back to the project I did...
Mix a little dark umber paint with classic gold and brush it on,
then wipe off to tone down the gold.
My leopard paper, also found in the scrapbook paper section at Hobby Lobby,
is a heavily textured, flocked paper, $2 each.
It looks more professional if you can match the pattern. Then tape lightly.
Trim with a sharp exacto knife.
Use the same procedure as above to ensure a perfect fit for the curve.
Remove the tape, and using a hot glue gun secure the corners and edges.
Look for it with a few different accessories in the PINK post next week!
Happy Friday, friends!
Hope your weekend is fabulous!
