I started with this Vinnies serving tray. It was in perfect order until my 19 mth old dropped and broke it, but I think we can putty up the hole or something.
Not pretty beforehand!!
I spray painted it white to start with
Then I put spray adhesive on the back of the doily to keep it still,...which then took the paint off (so either I did it too quickly or it may not be the solution)
And after a few touch ups to fix up the smudged white paint from the adhesive, here it is. It is not as crisp as I would have liked, but I had to touch it up a few times and this took the crispness out of the design....but it will be fine for the kids to play with or have on a duchess. There has always got to be a trial run, and I am happy enough with this one!
These are the doily placemats in the first stage. It was a bit hard for a 5 yr old to keep it in the lines, so I had to do the edges, but it will be a fun placemat for them. I just have to get my sewing machine fixed so I can sew it up. I just have to find some pretty letters and cut them out of gladbake or something to stencil in the middle.
