Mod podge, painting and more,....Newbie party on!

This is an older post I am sharing with the
Graphics fairy Brag monday party.

I had this pretty tray in our bedroom for sometime now. I bought it at World market on clearance for 10.00.
It started to look BORING...
so I fixed her up..

 First I spray painted in Olive, by Krylon, t
hen I took some simple gold metallic craft paint and applied it with a paper towel, and wiped and rubbed in evenly.
 Took some sand paper and sanded the edges..I let the natural color come through as well, for that aged chippy look
New pillow from Marshalls..loves it!

I found some cute graphics from the graphic fairy website, printed, cut, and Mod podged them on.

How about we get this newbie party started?
You know the rules?
Blogging 6 months or less, and/or less than 100 followers.
Link your post back to me saying you are joining the newbie party, or just add my button.
I would love if you became a new friend as well.
Let's get started!
Have fun, and be sure to visit the gals that visit you....

I will be joining:
Graphics fairy Brag Monday.

Current newbie party going on 10-2-11

Very creative use of the paper! I usually just slap it everywhere. And very appropriate with Mardi Gras almost here!

I agree with Lori, I got a hankering for anything with fleur de lis and "ROOSTERS".Debbie you got me hooked on the rooster thingy, and I love it, I've got a project I'm working on but first go check out my winnings.

Love your new tray! We were supposed to have a bunch of rain today, but it ended up sunny and 73 degrees! It was windy, but you can't beat that! I have to say though I was sort of looking forward to a dreary rainy day. It was the perfect excuse to snuggle on the couch and watch movies!

Wow, your newbie party is huge! I'll have to cruise thru some of the blogs:)

Your tray looks so good, you always get your mod podge so even. Mine always has bubbles then I usually overdo trying to flatten them out and rip the paper...very frustrating ordeal!

I'm glad you like all my little cherubs:) My husband is such a lovebug to tolerate all these nicknacks!

So fun, Debbie! The fleurs-de-lis are such a fun touch to your tray! And, you *know* I love the birds nest/eggs under the cloche! The scrabble letters are a fun touch, too. I might have to pull my letters out. :)
