Day 29: Bubble Tray

The inspiration for today’s project came to me in the middle of the night the other night. I don’t know how functional it is but I think it looks pretty cool. See for yourself:

Bubble Tray

I started with a basic wooden serving tray that I got at one of the local craft stores. I then painted it blue and hand glued the flat-backed clear and blue glass gems all over the actual tray portion. They reminded me of bubbles so I am calling this my bubble tray.

Now the tray is in tact so it can still work, but the surface isn’t level with all of the gems so, as I said, I can’t say that it is the most functional serving piece.

  1. This is really pretty. I think you could use it to carry paper products or silverware since it isn’t a smooth surface. I love trays.

  2. I like it, too, Michelle. How about using that clear leveling resin to make it flat?

    • Another thought I had was that I could get a piece of clear lucite or glass and put it in the tray above the glass gems to provide a level surface. But, to be honest, I kind of like the texture of it so I don’t know if I want to cover it up or not.
