Etceteras: Chippy Pedestal Tray

Coastal Decor Weathered Chippy Serving StandI’m loving my new coastal weathered pedestal tray. I started out creating this with the plan to make a sign. But I really don’t need another sign. Then it was going to be an jewelry holder. I couldn’t decide what to do with it so  I set it aside. Because I’m completely out of room, I placed the flat tray temporarily on top of another pedestal dish that I have in my craft room and inspiration struck. It would be perfect as a pedestal tray.

Coastal Decor Upcycled Wood to Pedestal TrayHere’s where I started. A little wood plaque that I found at Target in the dollar bins. Like I said, my plan was to make a cute sign. I painted the plaque with white craft paint and added bits of grey and aqua. I then used a crackle medium to give it a weathered look.
