Turn a Picture Frame into a Serving Tray

The corner of the kitchen where the coffee pot sits needed a little love.  There are some nice trays for sale that would have fit the bill but who wants to spend money when you can DIY?  I saw this idea from Lemon Tree on Pinterest and I loved it.  We had a picture frame that was not being used, so we replaced the photo and matting with scrapbook paper.  Next we drilled holes and added some brushed nickel handles.  

Here is the area before...

.... and now after.  It transforms the area from "random items sitting on a counter" to a place which brings everything together with style.

We spent a couple of bucks on some transparent silicone and sealed the inside edges around the glass in order to protect the paper from spills.

The frame was nice and sturdy so the handles hold very well.  For extra counter protection we stuck some felt pads over the screw heads on the bottom.  There you have it!  A repurposed picture frame into a chic serving tray.

  7. That is incredible thought of Music for StarBreak which you jump at the chance to imparted to us thorugh this post. Your choice of pictures meet the requriements of the substance. I don't have such reasoning which you portrayed here. As a music darling i'm cheerful to peruse this thought and appreciated it a considerable measure. Notwithstanding, I attempt to get the answer that what is legit? but I felt that this thought is interesting on the grounds that I have visited a great deal sites and couldn't peruse such thought.
