Under $5 Project

You guys know I’m all about projects on the cheap.   From a new light fixture for $5 to a bathroom makeover for $25.  It’s fun to me (maybe I’m just weird like that) to see how little I can spend on a project.  Or, maybe its that I’m half broke all the time and I do what I gotta do to get what I want.  πŸ™‚ 

So, here’s another really quick and very inexpensive project for ya.

I picked up a tray at the Goodwill a while back for $1.95 that still had the Steinmart tag on it for $29.95!  Bargain!  But, the style of it didn’t really go with mine and is a little out.  But, no worries about that, right?

So, as I was painting my lamp shades, I also grabbed this tray up and painted the wood the same Annie Sloan’s Duck Egg blue. I forgot to take a picture of the tray at this point by itself, but, see it in the background there?  (I know…bad blogger.)

I picked up an awesome paper pad (K & Company’s Life Journey) at Michael’s a few weeks ago (with a coupon of course) that had this awesome map paper in it.  And wouldn’t you know, the bottom of the tray was exactly 12×12 so the paper fit exactly!  That just doesn’t happen in my world.  It was fate.

So, with a little Mod Podge, I glued the paper down and then put a coat over the top and done!

Another project for under $5.  Love it!

  1. Great project:) Although I have to say I kind of liked this big round fella with a bottle of wine, hahaha. But if he did not quite agree with your decor he had to go:) Maps are great too. Love it!
