Thrift Store Redo: Vintage Wicker Tray
The combo of black, white and brown is my jam. In fashion and home. I also love color and have some pretty bright colors in my apartment. But the classic neutral palette will always be a fave. When I found this vintage wicker tray at a thrift store, I immediately knew I would be adding black & white paint. I'll show you how I did it.
Depending on your area, it shouldn't be too difficult to find a similar vintage tray at a thrift store near you. I cleaned it up but the edges of the wicker sure are difficult to clean.
I used painter's tape to tape off the edges of the tray because I wanted to keep some of the original look. Because of the uneven effect from the woven material, I thought I would have trouble with painting seeping under the tape but it worked like a charm.
Then I created a design with my Silhouette Cameo, cut it out of card stock and used it as a stencil. I used black acrylic paint. I tried to even the edges out with a black marker but that only worked moderately well. A fine paintbrush would have helped but I didn't have one on hand.
What do you think? Are you ready to run out and find a vintage tray to redo? I'm going to keep an eye for another tray!
