Plain Wood Serving Tray turned Shabby Farmhouse Decor

I'm definitely liking the end results of transferring images onto wood, plus it's quick and easy.

Here's another Goodwill makeover that I worked on this week using wax paper to transfer a Farm Fresh Milk Cow image onto a plain wood serving tray. I purchased the image from an Etsy shop called Graphic Marketplace. You can check them out HERE.


 Before


After


As you can see, the tray got a new coat of paint, after a thorough cleaning and sanding. I lightly distressed the edges of the tray to give it a shabby look and then transferred the image onto it. Lastly, I sprayed the tray with a clear matte sealer to help protect it.

If you want to see another transformation that I did using one of their graphics go HERE.




If you would like to find out how I easily transferred the image onto the wood tray using wax paper, click HERE. This will take you to another post that links to the steps to do it, along with numerous other methods that you can use.

Here's a closer picture of the image on the tray.



I did lightly color it in with a black colored pencil just to darken it a bit.




I already have another project started using this method, again, that I'll be posting about soon. If you'd like to see a cheese box that I madeover similar to this tray click HERE.




Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my makeover.

'til next time,
Adina
