I painted one of these old silver plated trays with chalk paint recently. It got me thinking that it would make a pretty frame as well. I am always looking for different ways to display my photography. I am going to lean it someplace or maybe attach a hook to the back and hang it. I will probably spray it with a clear acrylic too, as Modpodge(my fav)is not water proof. It was so easy to do, and you can find these trays for just a few dollars at Goodwill or the like.
