New Tray From A Platter

A few months ago, I found these three wooden platters/chargers at the local antique mart.

You might remember that I made over two of them and listed them in my Etsy

I still had one left and wanted to do something completely different.  Having run out of Old White and Pure White chalk paint, I turned to Vintage White craft paint to paint this piece.

I found four knobs that I had kept from a night stand makeover to use as feet for the base of the platter.

I then pulled out this image that I had copied when I went to the library, to do a Mod Podge transfer.  The image is from The Graphics Fairy.  I usually take a few images with me when I go to the library to use their copier to make toner copies for Mod Podge transfers.

While I don’t change up the vignettes around our home frequently, I do seem to like changing up whatever vignette I put on our dining table.

For right now, I just put my little green plant from Christmas {which I can’t believe is still alive} on it with some faux roses.

Keeping it more neutral in a creamy white allows me to use it anywhere in our home, but I kind of like it here for right now.

Adding the knobs (feet) to the piece was genius! I love it!

I just picked up a tray at the goodwill that I was hoping to do something similar with only my knobs are more round. I think I like yours better! This turned out fantastic:)

Pretty! That's a good idea to take a few images with you when you go to the library. Mine is down the road but I don't always have a car. So I should do the same - thanks for the idea!
