dining table makeover

A silver Moroccan tray was on one of my "must have" list. It has been my obsession for a long time. My latest ebay found tray is so big that it would only fit on the dining table. The table is a vintage oak table and was stained the typical yellow. I loved that color some time ago but recently it felt dated. So I used good old black shoe polish which was laying around and I made sure I could still see the beautiful wood grain. I do not recommend using shoe polish but it worked for me. I know I should not touch the original patina and I probably ruined the table, but my home decor motto is "surround yourself with things you love". Life is short eh? :)


Obsessed with the silver and hammered intricate star design detail.

The tray nearly covers the entire surface.

I really love the outcome. The Shiva with Papua shell necklace and old metal Turkish drinking cups complete my dinning table makeover.

Happy weekend!xx
