Everyone has a favorite piece of old clothing that they just can’t bare to part with. I adopted one of Alberto’s. His navy Coca-Cola t-shirt was my favorite because it was so comfy. It had been worn for so long that it was all soft and light. But after so many years, the holes were getting a little large, and I couldn’t repair it because the thread would only rip more of the fabric. When the hole under one of the arms became so large that it exposed most of my side, Alberto had enough. He wouldn’t allow me to wear it any longer, but I still couldn’t part with it. Then this weekend, we were planning to make a tray using some of the old fabric from past projects, and then I got this great idea . . . why not use the t-shirt?! We could preserve it for memories sake, and turn it into something useful and fun. It turned out great! Read more →

Since the white marble tile tray from a few weeks ago was so easy to make and it looked so nice, we decided to do another one…albeit, a bit different. We were walking through Home Depot, and Alberto saw a Carrera marble floor jam. We put three silver handles on it, and it is now a great and interesting serving tray! This is one of those projects that is quick and easy, and it can turn a nice affair into something really elegant. And you don’t have to spend a lot of money!
