Buy now ask questions later! The price was certainly right, only 50 cents, but what was this item and what was it’s original use? It looked like a miniature pallet, but felt a little like a tray. Whatever it was didn’t really matter. I loved the fact that it was a fresh unstyled piece and I was determined to give it a new look. After searching the Goodwill shelves a bit more and leaving disappointed, I took a trip down the fabric aisle and found a nice old bed skirt with a triangular pattern that would be a perfect restyle fabric.
I gathered the materials I would need. Firstly, I traced the pallet slats onto the fabric with a black sharpie marker. I repeated this a total of 3 times once for each slat. I then cut the fabric out with scissors.
I applied the Mod Podge to each slat with a foam brush and glued down the fabric smoothing it out gently with my hand. I used black acrylic to paint the non decoupaged areas. Once the piece was completely dry, I applied Mod Podge over the entire tray to seal it. Not bad for 50 cents!
