Repurposed Chrome Shelf Squares - Into Trays!

Hey friends!  I've got some new creations fresh from GadgetSponge Garage!

A couple of my good friends had an accident while moving a glass and chrome shelf unit and things went to pieces.  They showed me the chrome square support rings and I grabbed them thinking they might work out one day.  While looking around in the garage, it finally hit me.  Turn them into breakfast trays!

Each piece starts with custom cut wood to serve as the base for the trays.  The artwork was either decoupaged or nailed to the wood and then I used different pieces for the feet of each tray.

I created the one above with original vintage illustrations from a Dick and Jane book that I had three copies of.

I used a piece from some vintage retail wrapping paper that features illustrations of fishing lures.

This one features a map of the larger New Orleans area.

With this last one, I used vintage metal letters, some metallic blue paint and vintage metal roller skate pieces as the feet.

BUY THEM NOW!  In my ETSY SHOP (HERE).  Or at Timeline Antiques & Collectibles Mall in Shreveport, LA.

I pinned one of your bird feeders and wanted to see how it was made, brought me to your page, wow. from page 1 thru page 41. Even my hubby, who usually doesn't like to look at blogs with me likes yours. Beautiful. You've given me great ideas and man I wished I lived closer so I could go to the stores, cause shipping would be outta this world.
