mod podge serving platter

I found this fire engine red serving tray at a garage sale a few weeks back for $2. It's hard to see in the pictures but it's really sort of glittery and reminds me more of a Christmas platter than a summer patio serving platter, which is what I really wanted.

So I brought out some mod podge and tissue paper (both from garage sales this summer) and set to tone down the red a bit.

It sat half finished for the better part of a week. I wasn't thrilled with how it was shapping up, but I was already committed, so I forged on!

And here's the finished product on my patio. Not my favorite thing I have made, but still something I will use. In hindsight, I probably should have spray painted the tray black first, then put the tissue paper on it. I don't love it, but I don't hate it either.

What do you think?

This is pretty cool! It looks distressed!

I love it. The nice thing is that if you get tired of it, you can always paint it black right on top of what you have, and then mod podge again! :)
