There’s nothing like coming up with new use for an old dynode. You can take an old picture frames and make a great gift for mother’s day. This serving tray will make mom’s breakfast in bed really special. All you need is flexi glass, wrapping paper, and just about half an hour. Begin with an old picture frame. Ours is 14 x 20 inches prepainted with an antique white latex paint. We’ve also had a piece of flexi glass cut to fit the frame. Flexi glass is much more practical for a tray since glass is in place will be sliding around on it. Next, use the original cardboard for the backing of the frame and cover it. We use wrapping paper for our covering. Place this over the flexi glass and secure it in place by pushing down the metal clips. Now glue 2 prepainted 2 x 2’s to each side that are cut to size. This will give extra depth and support for the legs that will be added later. Use a ¾ inch paddle bit to drill holes for the dowels to hold the legs in place. Drill into each corner then glue in place each dowel. We’ve used wooden candle stick holders that glue right on to the dowels. Once the glue is dry, turn the tray over and screw on a rod iron handle to each side. What was once a has been frame is now a charming bed tray. The shapely candle stick legs add wonderful charm. And the decorated paper underneath can be changed to fit any décor or occasion like mother’s day. And remember, you can get all the printable instructions right here.
