Quick and Easy Redo for A Flea Market Picture Frame

I’ve had this picture frame hanging on the wall for years and grew tired of the picture inside. After thinking about it awhile I decided to paint it my new favorite color aqua and distress it a bit. I inserted a fun red and white polka dot fabric (which will also be used to make curtain valances and pillows for my breakfast room) and VOILA…
A Chic Table Tray!
It now sits on the newly redone table in my breakfast room. I love it!
Thanks for stopping by today!!!

  18. Dear Lisa
    I've been checking all your wonderful make-overs. OMG. We are kindred spirits for sure. My kitchen table was yucky brown. it's been a pretty blue like your chairs, with a pink table. I want you to see it. It's in my archives somewhere on my blog, but I would love to send you some pics of it. I tell you it's the same!! I think we distress the same too ; )
    Love all your projects. My blog is mostly about family, trips and fur babies. I think it's time to go back to my skills… spray painting show and tell lol
    Nice to meet you
    Oh BTW… I visited N.C. in March. Met some great blogging friends. You have a beautiful State.
    Love Claudie from Canada
