Time to Mod Podge

Pin It I found these at a yard sale last week and snatched them up for 10 cents a piece not knowing what I was going to do with them.  They were such a great price that I just couldn't resist.



Then Saturday, I found these at another yard sale.  Since the set was only $1.50, they would be perfect for our main washroom.  A candle will be lovely sitting on the little tray attached tray.  Planning on making some changes to our decor once I am back home, I knew that I could change the little wooden trays up a bit to match.




I am not sure how Bob is going to feel about having such a girly girl washroom...especially the main washroom but he usually doesn't complain too much as long as he doesn't have to do any of the work.


Stripping off the plastic and paper liner that was on the tray proved to be very difficult as you can see in the top right hand corner.  I had to use a scraper and some warm water to get the sticky goo under the paper off the tray but they finally came clean.


I then cut my pink rose fabric the correct size to fit nicely into the trays.  Giving the bottom of the tray a coat of mod podge, then laying the piece of fabric down and applying more mod podge to the top of the fabric, I assumed I was done and just had to wait for it to dry.  Well that it wasn't going to be that easy.


Unfortunately once the mod podge dried, you could see through the flowery fabric and the dark green paint with white paint splattered underneath....NOT what I wanted but I wanted to use this fabric!


So I once again cut three pieces of the same fabric and applied those on top of the already applied fabric in the trays.  Once dried, the fabric underneath was faintly visible through the top fabric but I didn't mind the look.


These trays will be perfect to hold my nail polish, makeup and brushes once the washroom is finished.

Well now I am hoping to find a few more items for the washroom at yard sales before I head back home.  Hee, hee.

Remember to give your loved ones a hug!

  1. Great projects. I need to get my decoupage out and work on my yard sale finds from last weekend. I will post the items on my blog today but probably won't get to that working on it for a bit. So many projects ... so little time.
