Maddie's First Solo Project

After watching her dad and I do projects all Summer, Maddie decided she was ready to try one out on her own.
She found this  cute metal lap tray at a benefit garage sale down the road from our house.  It was only a quarter.  How in the world are people supposed to raise money when they charge such low prices?  My husband gave them a dollar.  What a guy.
Here she is spray painting it with Krylon's Blue Ocean Breeze. Of course, I totally forgot to take a photo of her doing the first step of priming the tray.

After about 3 layers of spray paint, we added a cute vintage flamingo decal that I purchased from Magpie Ethel's E is for Ethel etsy shop.  Now she has the perfect place to do her bead and button projects.

I think I have created a project monster!

Until next time...



  1. High five to Maddie! Great project and glad the decal got put to use. She did a great job!

  2. Aww!! How sweet! I'm sure you are one proud Mama! It turned out so well too! :)

  3. I have a sheet or two of vintage decals that I couldn't sell, do you want them??

    Maddie is crafty!! The tray is really cute!!

  4. Holy cheese that is an awesome idea! Great job little crafter! I might have to go check out some of those decals!

  5. Great job, Maddie! I painted a wicker desk that same color! I love it! ♥
