Make a tray from an old picture frame

I have had this old picture frame for ages, and while I knew I could make something cool with it, I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do.

I had painted it green at some point. I initially thought about painting it another color, but I found some old scrapbook paper that matched the color perfectly.

I found some really cool drawer pulls in a basket of junk parts that we never seem to throw away. I promptly drilled some holes in the side of the frame.

I brushed the dust away and then made two more holes on the opposite side.

I then screwed the drawer pulls to the tray.

I am pretty pleased with my cute little tray. It’s currently brightening up a corner of our office.

What upcycle creation have you made lately?
