Vintage Serving Tray

I found this little gem at a yard sale. I’d been looking for a tray to use on an ottoman in my home, but I was having trouble finding one that I liked that had nice low sides. This one was perfect. Except, of course, for the condition that it was in. It had a dated finish and a few fairly bad cracks on the edges. All fixable of course! After cleaning it up and fixing the cracks I gave it a pale, gray blue paint job, then distressed the edges. Then I finished it off with some water-based sealer. Just because.

SEALER: Polyacrylic, satin finish
