This Upcycled Vintage Silver Tray Set was one that took on a life of its own from the very first piece! I had an extra large silver tray and wanted to see if a transfer would work on straight silver that wasn’t painted! Guess what? It worked like a charm. As the first piece was made an idea formed to continue it to make it an entire set! I had the pieces so this Inked beauty came into being!
The transfer is called Inked Flash from Cece Restyled by Prima RE-Designs. You can shop it here https://www.redesignwithprima.com/product/redesign-decor-transfers-cece-inked-flash-total-sheet-size-24×35-cut-into-2-sheets/. I ended up purchasing two transfers to complete all 7 pieces. Simply rub in on and then peel of the backing and then seal with a sealer of your choice!
To compliment the transfer I used Posh Chalk metallic pastes which you can find here https://woodubend.us.com/ref/RoyaleFunkyJunque/. I used Green Phthalo, Red Alizarin, Purple and Blue but unfortunately those two are currently out of stock. I accented the handles, feet, spouts and sides of tray with a combo of each paint. Once applied mist with water and blend it all together with a clean wet brush! For the tops and bases I added black stripes. I added Antique Gold Rub n Buff to all fancy edges and designs to really make the detail pop!
And of course in true funky junque fashion I added a ton of sparkle using rhinestones from the Totally Dazzled Ultimate Rhinestone Applicator Kit which you can find here https://bit.ly/2V2mOSM. I added the gems to all the details of the silver pieces as well as all around the designs of the transfer! It truly is a remarkable one of a kind set and one I am proud to have done!

I did the rest on the side but the process is the same for each piece!
Here is the final pics of each piece! This set will be available at my next auction at School House Salvage https://www.facebook.com/schoolhousesalvage on March 19th, 2023
I hope you all enjoyed this Upcycled Vintage Silver Tray Set makeover as much as I did making it!
