Thrift Find Makeover

I love makeovers of just about anything from people to things. A couple of weeks ago, I found this tray that someone started to make as a craft.

I loved the idea but it looked boring. I replaced the paper with one of my orchid photos. I took off the corner embellishments and replaced them with pearls. Then I took a chartreuse satin ribbon and attached it to the side to hide a few scratches on the frame and viola....

I recreated this beautiful piece. I can't help but get a sense of satisfaction that with a few tweaks, I can create something beautiful.

It's available on my Etsy store...
