Brady Bunch Cheese Tray- Redone!

             Mrs. Brady called and she wants her cheese tray back!                


Picked this tray up at Goodwill on the serious cheap (can't remember the exact price...less than $5) 

I cut some fabric I got at Hobby Lobby to fit the size of the lovely wheat plate thingy.  Then I used modge podge to adhere it to the tin plate.

I spray painted the wood with a laquer spray paint so it will have a good amount of protection. 

And Tada! 

I picked up a pillar candle holder from World Market for $1.20 to protect the fabric when cutting the cheese (pardon the expression...there was no getting around it!).

Whatcha think?  You like?  Super easy!  And the fabric goes with the tray that is in my etsy shop!

  12. If we are going to talk about murals, it is a harsh reality that there are people who do not appreciate artworks like this. I fell bad, but there is less that I can do; I want them to realize that murals are beautiful and worth appreciating. But I simply don't know where to start. Sometimes, I think of writing as my way to influence people to appraiser things that should be appreciated. I don't know if that is going write my assignment for me to be effective, but I want to give it a try.

  13. Thank you so much for sharing such a great assignment writing help and knowledgeable blog. Thanks!
