Hey, there, it’s Sarah of Sadie Seasongoods again, with a new upcycling idea to share with you.
Every year, the company, Pantone, comes out with a “Color of the Year”. And for 2022, that color was “Very Peri”, which is a bright periwinkle blue/violet. So, I decided to harness that bright, gorgeous color into an upcycling makeover. But not just any makeover- a DIY mirrored tray that started as a picture frame from one of our Charlotte Region ReStores! You might be surprised at how easy and straightforward this upcycling project is.
If you do any spray painting, make sure you have a well-ventilated area to work in. If you are working with a hot glue gun, make sure to keep your fingers away from the tip and don’t touch any recently-dispensed glue that is still soft.
