Happy AccidentsLet's revisit one of my treasures from thrifting the other day; shall we?! If you remember I purchased
this sweet, little tray last week. It was a bit of a gold color and I thought that it would look superb in
silver . It would also match more of our bedroom décor in that shade. Here are some pictures before
applying my trusty rub N buff in a silver finish.

I took a look at how the mirror was attached and figured out a way to dismantle it without any harm
to the mirror or tray. I figured that this would be the easiest way of applying the rub N buff without
the hassle of painters tape. It also allowed me to get into every crevice and corner. However, as with
every situation in life when my inner jiminy cricket issues me a warning I should know by now to
listen to it. On this particular day E and I were watching cartoons in the morning while crafting.
Something told me to put the mirror above the fridge. I neglected to do so and E picked up the mirror
to admire himself. I told him not to touch the mirror. Again something told me to put the mirror
on top of the fridge. I was too afraid that it would somehow slip and we'd have broken glass on the
floor. Instead I placed the mirror on top of a tote bag that was sitting on the armchair. An armchair
that E never sits on mind you. Not five minutes later I heard craaaack. E had decided that he wanted
to sit on the chair, in doing so he had slid the bag and mirror onto the floor. The mirror survived the
fall, but not him stepping on it. eeeek!!! I was 2 feet away the entire time, Go figure. Luckily the
crack was straight through and no shards came out and no one was hurt , except for
Now I had a silver tray and no mirror. What's a girl to do?! When in doubt, chalk it out! I added some
chalkboard paint and it instantly became a whole new project! Not what I expected, but I love it all
doesn't it look cute next to my repurposed candy dish/ ring holder!
perfect as a catch all for my watches and sunglasses .
