My name is Erin and I’m the DIY wannabe behind How to Nest for Less!
for my Daughter’s Bedroom!
One of my favorite children’s books was a gift from my grandmother, a nursery rhyme hardcover illustrated by Maud Humphrey. As soon as we opened the pages, I knew I would have to purchase another copy and use the illustrations for a project.
I found this little tray on clearance at JoAnn Fabrics & Crafts for $5 and I thought I could put it to good use.
If you ever happen to stop by my blog, you’ll quickly find out I’m a sucker for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and use it on many furniture transformations! I gave the tray a coat of some Old White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and distressed the edges.
I decided to tear the edges of the paper to keep with the vintage look and feel.
