I used white chalk paint to paint these.
I then printed 4 different french graphics from The Graphics Fairy. I used the freezer paper method. You print them onto freezer paper then press and rub with a spoon onto the surface you are transferring to.
I like the faded image that appears. It adds to the aged effect.
To add a little more age and interest, I lightly dabbed a small paint brush into some dark wax then lightly brushed it around the tray.
I waxed them with clear wax after, then buffed them to finish it up.
