Tilt Top Tray!

 I found this vintage tray last year at a garage sale. It was dirty, pink and ugly, so I bought it! Why? Because it's magical!

 I painted it AS cream chalk paint, which is a soft butter yellow, and added this French postage graphic from The Graphic Fairy! What is magical about this tray is, it not only has fold-down legs...

 ...But is also has a tilt top!

 It has three levels of tilt as viewed from the back (under).

I also did a bit of paint embelishing!

  1. This is adorable. I love anything French/Farmhouse style... like a lot! :) I followed you over from The Friday Pinfest!

    I would love it if you would link this up at my "That Friday Pinterest Party" as well! :)

  2. Awesome find Terry - beautiful makeover! I love the French postal graphic you choose for this piece - very fitting considering in the day it was probably used to write snail mail letters (remember those) LOL. Glad I found it over at the Flaunt It Friday Party!

  7. I've been using an extra bed pillow to prop my book on---huh, guess I need to find one of these!

  8. OH my, I found an exact replica at an antique store and have it on the guest room bed. I spell out messages with scrabble pieces for my guests. Mine is in great shape but I like yours a lot. Dilemma: Do I paint mine too???

  9. You find the best things!! You made it look really pretty too.

  10. Adorable! Thanks for linking up with us at Your Designs This Time.
