Base coat the tray with white spray paint covering all graphics and color so the sheer pattern tissue designs show when decoupaged onto the center of the tray...allowing to dry.
Using a 3/4" brush and metallic gold paint, stripe the edge of the tray down to the center decoupaged area.
Use a coat of stain or distressing ink to knock the paint down and give it some age.
Clean up the line where the paint meets the pattern with a row of vintage buttons.
Drill two holes on the inside flat part of the tray, weaving a ribbon or cord through creating a hanger for your bulletin board.
Seal the overall piece with Krylon clear sealer.
Using large vintage buttons and magnets purchased at a hardware or craft store, affix them to each other using household epoxy glue.........you're ready to post important notes to yourself in your sewing room.......
