Altered Breakfast Tray

So, here's another one of my "things to alter" projects. I bought this breakfast tray at Hobby Lobby. If your patient about wandering through Hobby Lobby you can find some really good deals. (I was a little disturbed walking in there however last week as they were putting up their Christmas displays. I wanted to turn around and walk out, but then figured my act of defiance probably wasn't going to change anything. Instead, I ended up spending $30 in there-what's wrong with me?) So, it is a really nicely constructed piece, not like the $3 ones in the unfinished wood isle. However, as you can see, it wasn't the prettiest thing I had ever seen, but I knew I could take care of that!!! But the price was right-originally $39.99, now $6.99.
I was able to quickly cover it with Stampin' Up Fall Flowers paper. I used Modge Podge to adhere it. I'm still debating whether to cover the top with modge podge to protect it, but I don't alway like the way it looks sometimes. I will show you later what the finished intention for project.
Here it is upright so that you the inside a little better.

I know what you mean about Hobby Lobby. Great job on the tray. Our Bloggers challenge this week was to alter something. I hope you won't mind if I connect to you and feel free to check out mine. thanks

This came out great! What a bargain, too. Have you considered getting a piece of glass for over the PP instead of Mod Podge?
