And they call it mellow yellow....

Once again participating in my favorite partay of the week, Miss Jenny's Alphabet Rainbow party. YELLOW!!~ Is the color this week. So it Seems it is a little quiet these days for thrifting.  I managed to hit Goodwill the other day with my son Jack.  He grosses out at the thought that these things where actually other peoples, I reassured him we clean them good of other peoples cooties.  I found this little tray, it is not silver just something cheap made in China...but none the less cute with some pretty detail. Took me little time to clean it and transform it to life again.
BEFORE....I paid $2.99 for this little tray...I just thought it was cute though....and what color did I choose you ask????
Little paint, little craft glaze later...I have an elegant little platter...
I just love this photo is all.....I will be re-posting this tomorrow sometime for my Garage SALEN partay...see you then for linking up.

Here are some parties I will be joining as well:

I am such a sucker for leaves. I would have bought it too - I don't know if I would have thought to paint it though. Paint isn't always my first thought - but I think paint was a great idea!!

I know you're not old enough to remember when that song was popular (post title), but I give you big points for knowing your music so well! The tray is great the way you spruced it all up. It does have neat detail. Good find!

You had me going! I was thinking, is she really going to keep that silver? I love the color you chose for this and the glaze job you did! It is perfect! It's going to look great this fall with those leaves on it too! I really love it girlfriend! You did great! LOL! My older son and his friends, college kids all LOVE GW! The highschooler not so much! LOL! :)

That tray is very cute and I like it both ways. Of course you spray painted it. You are with spray paint like I am with glazing. My daughter and I went in a Goodwill store last weekend after the flea market store and she was grossed out, too. She could not wait to leave.

Dearest Debbie,

What a genius idea for transforming that tray the way you did! The supplies were almost more expensive than the object itself...

Great images, looks very neat.

Greetings from Georgia,

As long as it has great detail any old tray will do, with oor without cooties!. It looks great. Debbie, do you think my stool in the "Donotapul"this weeks post will work for garage salen? I sold it at my antique store within a day.

Everything in your home is so darn pretty and pulled together. I look at your photos and sigh! My fave is the first one of the sun streaming through the windows onto the table. Niiiiiiiiiiiice!

It looks great as yellow and on your table! You are so talented with the paint!!! My boys don't want to go with me anywhere! Especially if they think it is shopping!

Your son's aversion to thrifting sounds just like my dad's - except he insists that we're looking at 'dead peoples' stuff' - thanks Dad, that'a a charming thought...of course it doesn't stop me!
Great job on the platter.

What an adorable little find!

You have such a neat style all around your home, Miss Debbie. I really admire how you put all these cool things together!

No garage sales here in AZ right now. Too wickedly hot! But as soon as I start going again I'll link up to your Garage Salen! That's a fun meme!

I enjoyed seeing you here today!

Thank you for linking.

Well, first of all, I love silver anything. I don't care if it is cheap stuff either. I actually put some of my tarnished silver...which looks yellow...on my post for the day. But, I loved the idea of painting it gold. I recently bought a silver tray and the inside was painted with chalk board paint. Great idea too! I also watched your little video and I will be back to check out some more.

great transformation! i also love your tablescape...can i admit that seeing the grapes made me run downstairs to the fridge and grab a handful myself? oh the power of if i could just get off my duff and scour the goodwill for a nifty find like yours, i would be all set!

Hey, Deb!!

I am totally loving what you did with that sweet tray!! I adore it in yellow. And you have given me a great idea for a tray that I currently just have a primer on and was dabating how to finish it! Thanks again for another fantastic idea!!
