My house is a mess, my craft room is a mess, my dog is feeling neglected, but I'm having a blast!
Some of you may need to look away for this project. It's what I do, take something old and give it a new life. In order to do that I must destroy the old first.
In this case, I am working with a silver plated serving tray. The kind all our grandmothers and most of our moms have.
Looking good, safety first.
First I remove the edge of the tray, then cut into two peices to work with. This one gave me a heck of a time.
Then there was 5
Off to the grinder. This smoothes out all the edges so they are not sharp.
Three hours later and you have 3 started books and 2 misc. shapes I have ideas for. Did I forget to mention what I am making with this tray? Check back to see what the next steps are and the finished product.
Oh, and the dog! I told you he is feeling neglected.
