I saw a tray a couple of weeks ago in a home decor store, and I loved the look. It was bronze with green paint sanded off for an aged look. My brain wheels started turning because I remembered a tray I have that’s similar.
My bronze tray is on top of my kitchen cabinets – sort of hiding in the corner. Can you tell in this picture if the tray has been transformed yet?
That sure is a dark corner! (And, yes, the tray is painted in this picture.) See?
The tray is sort of bowl shaped, but I don’t know. I don’t use it as a bowl. I bought it many years ago at a Southern Living at Home party.
the inch of dust off of it clean, I painted one coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Florence. I let it dry for about 30 minutes.
Since sanding the paint could scratch the surface, I rubbed it with a wet paper towel.
It took about five minutes of rubbing to get the look I wanted.
To age it a little further, I rubbed some Annie Sloan clear wax into it, followed by the dark wax. I had to rub thoroughly to get down into all the crevices. It’s amazing how the paint turned more blue toned.
Since Southern Living at Home has been pretty popular for a while, I was wondering if maybe you have one of these.
With so many Annie Sloan colors to pick from, any brass or bronze piece could be transformed quickly and easily. Would you let me know if you try this project? I’m interested in the color you choose.
Maybe you’ve already painted something similar. Leave me a comment and let’s chat about it, y’all!
