Chalky Finish Tray - Resin; the finishing touch

While decorating the guest suite of our new home I wanted to add painted items to make the room pretty.  I found this great tray and knew it would be perfect on the newly painted chalky finish dresser.  It could also double to bring breakfast to our special guests. I knew that resin would be the finishing touch.

You go to all the trouble of painting something and making it beautiful, but often you need to take just one more step to ensure that the piece will be protected.

I painted the details using a DecoArt stencil  and a rubber stamp in the shape of a rose.

You can see the glossy sheen of the resin. Not only did it make the surface shiny and look like lacquer, but it is protected from damage and spills.  I used EnviroTex Lite®
