Turning A Picture Frame Into a Display or Serving Tray

Vote for this contest contender!

I have many picture frames I have collected through the years. Since I am using less on the walls, I came up with a decorative and useful project idea, so that they can be used as a display or serving tray with an interchangeable insert.

Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: 1

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. First take your frame and remove backing and glass; set aside.
  2. Spray paint your frame. Allow to dry.
  3. With a drill make holes for knobs (optional). These were also spray painted to match.
  4. The backing from your frame is used as a template to cut to size your insert. You can cut out as many as you like to have interchangeable looks.
  5. Replace and secure the backing. You can add decorative beads around the edge of your frame, if desired.
  6. If you are using your tray as a food server, you will need to run a bead of clear sealer around the top where the glass meets the frame.
