Recently, I was browsing an online Pottery Barn sale and came across the Esta Ikat Gilt Tray for $71.00 on sale. It looked very similar to the wood tray that currently sits on my ottoman from IKEA. This tray however cost around $15.00 (and I believe is no longer available at IKEA--BOO)!
That's when I thought: I could use Modge Podge and fabric to make it Pottery Barn(ish)! Better yet, I had the supplies needed already in my craft stash--my cost (FREE!).
And, that's exactly what I did...
|First I traced the tray onto my selected decorator fabric.|
|Using a foam brush, I applied a generous amount of Modge Podge as I went. I also made sure all bubbles were pushed out and that the fabric was very smooth.|
|Once all the fabric was attached to the tray, I applied a generous additional coat of Modge Podge on top of the fabric ensuring the seams were secure.|
|I also decided to add some silver Rub n' Buff to the edge of the tray (using my finger).|
|I LOVE IT! so much better! Have you done any high/low hacks lately?|
