Simple Tray Makeover

Hope everyone is having an awesome Thursday. Only one more day until the weekend. Yay!
This is what my crafty hands have been up to lately:
I went to Hobby Lobby the other day and purchased this tray for only $4.79! I wanted something that Trinity could use to carry her homework stuff around the house. We usually sit at her desk but sometimes it is convenient to do it while in the kitchen or even outside on a pretty day. I took a handful of pictures and converted them to black and white and had them printed out. I chose the purple because I thought the color would go well with the color combo of her room and I also had the color stashed in my craft paints. :) The tray was actually $7.99 but with the coupon, it came to $4.79...cannot beat that deal!

I put on 3 layers of paint (waiting about a hour in-between each coat) and then cut positioned my pictures how I wanted them. I applied a layer of modpodge on the bottom, placed my pictures on top and then applied another layer of modpodge. I make sure to go from side to side because it will look very streaky and move the pictures if I am not as careful. Also, I noticed that where the modpodge hit on the paint, it turned it a darker shade so have to be sure to be careful about that also. of course I can just lightly touch up those spots so no big deal. So, here is out finished product:

Thought it turned out cute, inexpensive and love how it is all about my mini-me! 

Yesterday, Trinity had a class party and RJ and I both got to go to it!
I love being able to go see her interact with her friends and it always puts a smile on her face when we visit her. The hubs was off so we got to enjoy lunch together at Chilli's before I went back to work. It works out well that I get long lunch breaks because I can come home and clean, go see my sweet girl at school or have mini-dates with the hubby.  He is off again today so he went to go pick her up from school early and take her shopping. So sweet and I know she loves the extra time with Daddy!
