I was looking for a manual for my father today, when I rediscovered a round metal mirrored vanity tray in a box. It was the perfect size to organize my fragrances. However, I became quite dismayed when I saw the rust spots on it from careless usage in the past. Should I throw it away? No, I didn't want to. It was such a pretty tray, regardless; then it hit me. My mother gave me a huge sheet of Victorian styled scrap booking stickers. I could use them to cover up the unsightly rust-thus, saving it from disposal.
So, I set to work applying them in a slightly, random assortment. It soon became apparent that I would not have near enough to cover the entire tray. I then proceeded to only cover part of it and the rest I embossed with a couple of decorative strips and only a few decals.
I am very pleased with what I accomplished. I saved my tray, and was able to hang the other to brighten my little corner of the room.
