NKR - breakfast serving tray

Much loved serving tray had become rather worn with several marks, cuts and stains on it. I gave my first try to decoupage technique transforming our old breakfast serving tray into newer version of it. Though with a bit of a shabby old look.

That is the picture Before :)
That is the very beginning of the process of putting on bottom layer paint. I forgot to take pics of almost all other steps so this post will not illustrate the process, just a bit of insight.

Playing with motif arrangements.
That's the final result. Lots of mistakes, a bit of disappointment and overall feeling this is not quite for me. I guess I am not patient enough for tiny detail cutting, accurate and careful gluing (I managed to get air bubbles in almost all motives!), and multi step process requires constant attention I don't have most of the time (ie. not forgetting project somewhere outside where it's left to dry until the rain comes).
