Frida Kahlo inspired decorative decoupage tray and art case

Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light.
~Frida Kahlo

I picked up this ugly old tray for $2.00 at the flea market about a week ago.  At that time I really had no idea what I was going to do with it.  I did know one thing it needed a makeover! My sister’s birthday is coming up and since discovering my new upcycling obsession, I wanted to make her something special.  I always admired the artist Frida Kahlo and I was intrigued by her artwork and her life story.  My sister is also a fan of her art and got to see an exhibit of her work a few years back.  I recently did a quick project of my own when I decoupaged my art box with Frida Kahlo art and scrap book paper. (Pictured below)

This gave me the idea for the tray. Simple projects too!

Her birthday is next week.  Hope she likes the tray, but I am keeping the art box!

  1. You really are helping me to see things in a new light!! I have a whole tub of Mod Podge, but for the past year it’s barely been used! I also have a bright orange tray sitting in my kitchen. My kitchen is retro/vintage, styled to be eclectic but colourful, & mostly 60’s. This gives me inspiration to spruce up that tray! Hooray!
