Now that the weather is getting warmer, I wanted to lighten up my home with some cute summer decor. It did not feel like summer was coming in my home and wanted to spruce up the mood.
I was inspired by Pinterest and decided to turn a picture frame into a tray, not just any tray, but a cute, decorative one. I have to say that I was also inspired when I partnered with Black and Decker sent me a 20V MAX Lithium Drill/Driver
play with use on a project.
I loved how lightweight and compact the drill is and the fact that it saved me time in my project! Not to mention some energy, there is no comparing trying to use a screwdriver to the power and ease using a power drill. It was so easy! Let me show you what I did to turn a photo frame into a serving tray. Be sure to read through and read about the giveaway from BLACK + DECKER.
I started fun DIY project with an unfinished picture frame. You can also use a finished frame.
I love paper crafting and used to scrapbook so I have a little supply one hand. I chose some cute polka dots for summer.
Next I painted it with some acrylic paint. I chose white, because, summer is coming!
I only did one coat because I kind of like the shabby chic washed wood look.
Then I added these two handles that I picked up at my local hardware store.
I made a mark on the frame to make a hole with a nail where the screws would go in. This is important to ensure that the holes will line up with the handle openings. (I am sure there is a technical term for this but I think you know what I mean).
Now for the fun part! This BLACK + DECKER Drill put the screws into the wood in SECONDS!
It was so simple to drill the screws to secure the handles.
Next thing you know, I had an adorable, decorative tray!
What a fun and quick way to repurpose a picture frame!
I just love looking at it and it really does make my home feel more like summer. I would highly recommend this drill for your DIY projects. If I can use it easily – nearly anyone can.
