Upcycled French Tray

I picked up this little wood tray at a local thrift store last week.  It was originally an ugly blue/green.  After a few coats of Annie Sloan chalk paint, it's now a pretty French tray.
At first I painted it white, but the white didn't seem to be covering the old paint very well.  So I switched to grey.  Much better!
You've probably seen this image on The Graphics Fairy.  It's one of my favorites!  And it fits perfectly for my little tray.  I used the Omni Gel method to add it to the front of the tray.  I couldn't wait to take pictures - you can see it's still a little wet/shiny in some spots.  Apparently, patience is not one of my virtues.

Love, love, loving my new tray!
