This is the 2nd one of these that I've thrifted.
The first one became a fruit bowl which I'd painted in a light yellow and then glazed.
I say it was a fruit bowl because that's how I staged my Etsy photo. Whoever bought it could be using it for anything.
I staged this one as a kind of toiletry tray with a beach theme, using a Martha Stewart paint sample called Sea Glass. It's one of the premixed MS samples that you can get at Home Depot for around $3. Those paint samples are great for doing small makeovers. A little goes a long way and it's actually cheaper than using craft paints. I still use some of my favorite craft paint colors, but I've basically switched over to wall paint samples.
Anyway, I gave this a few coats of paint and then distressed it. I staged it with hand-knit washcloths, some bath salts I had lying around and a starfish from my bathroom. LOVE!
I've got so many accessories that I want to use in my beachy bathroom makeover, it's gonna be so hard to choose what to keep. I've decided to sell this one for now. It can be found here, in my shop.
