Sunday project

Every now and then I like to share a project that I've been working on that is not cupcake or baking related. Yesterday I found this wooden basket/tray at JoAnn's on clearance. It was black, definitely not my color but I thought it would be perfect for a fruit "basket".   Today I had Juls (my husband) remove the handles for me so I could spray some primer & paint on it.  I used American Heirloom off white paint & Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze for the handles.   It now fits my decor perfectly! It's amazing how easy it is to change the look of something by a can of spray paint!

silver handles


I stuck the handle in styrofoam so I could paint it easily

Sprayed the handles with Oil Rubbed Bronze Spray paint

Reattaching the handles

All done.. I just noticed in this photo that the handle slipped & I can see silver
