Style at Home’s Becky shows us how to upcycle a picture frame into a vintage-style tea tray.
Create the perfect tea tray to accompany your cuppa. With just a couple of handles and a simple design you will be the envy of your tea party soiree.
Step 1: Separate the frame
Step 2: Mark screw holes for a handle in the middle of the shorter edge
Step 3: Repeat this for the other side
Step 4: Use a bradawl to make holes over your pencil markings for the screws
Step 5: Screw both handles in place
Step 6: Cover each screw head with a dot of white paint
Step 7: On colourful paper, draw round the backboard and cut out
Step 8: lay the paper over the hardboard and add some decoration, maybe in the form of some vintage linen
Step 9: Cover the design with the photo frame glass
