Before & After: a tray I bought in Mercat del Encants, Barcelona

The only thing I bought in Barcelona, when I went there in March, was this piece (for 4 euros!). I found it in a spanish Flea Market  - the fabulous Mercat des Encants - knowing it requiered a bit of work to make it perfect.
It turned out pretty good, I think. The worst part was getting rid of all the glue underneath the paper! Once that challenge was overcome, I applied a special wax to restore the colour. The red fabric with white dots is a temporary solution, until the wax is completly dry (its still a bit sticky)!
