Painted wood file tray

I really like the new DecoArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint - I'm going to be using these bright seasonal colors on lots of projects, I think!

After sanding the wood, I painted one coat of each color and dry brushed brown around the edges to distress it. I painted the bottom and back of the tray with brown, too.

I added a sepia-toned image of leaves and pinecones to the front panel using Craft Attitude printable film. Then I finished it off with some bronze-tone metal accents. Perfect for keeping pretty scrap papers and envelopes on hand.

Be sure to click on the "hop" links in the Designer Crafts Connection logo in my sidebar to see what lots of other designers are making this week...inspiring!


  1. Love the colors you chose for this project. It's so pretty, I would be tempted to leave it out all year long! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful work!

    1. Thanks - I love these paints, they covered quite nicely in just one coat.


Thanks so much for visiting my blog - I look forward to visiting yours, too!
