I made a visit to my local Goodwill today, and they had a nice picture frame for 99 cents. The condition was new, but the finish was a dark walnut. I don’t decorate with dark walnut, I live in a log home and dark wood frames just don’t show up, they blend in to the walls. I bought the frame anyway!
I have been wanting to make a picture frame serving tray with the handles I bought at the dollar store. The handles were 2 for a dollar, making the project cost 2 dollars.
Supplies you will need:
- picture frame, I painted mine ecru
- 2 drawer handles
- measuring tape
- power drill
- paper or pictures to decorate under the glass
I removed the glass and backing and used the frame glass to measure my background paper, I used wrapping paper, and cut with scissors. I measured where the holes were on the drawer handles and marked with a pencil on my frame. I used a power drill and drilled 2 holes on each side, making sure that they were equal. I painted my frame, and when it was dry, I attached the handles on my tray and replaced the glass, put the paper under the glass and secured the back.
That is it !! This project was very easy, if I didn’t paint the frame, it would have taken 15 minutes to make. I love the way it came out, it will be so cute to serve coffee on the holidays to my guests
And here is my finished project 🙂
