Trash to Green Treasure

I picked this up at a junk sale.
They  were going to throw it away. The leg was broken off and the handle had  snapped off.   The owner said it wasn't of any use to her. 

Not perfect ! 
Look at this tray ! 
It's huge.

And it lifts off the bottom so you can  use  it on a table top.

So I glued it  back  together.

Sanded, Primed and Painted
You can see the very  broken  handle here.

Here is some of the  detail
This leg  looks  bad but is very sturdy still.

Here is the leg I  fixed

The detail on the tray is  fantastic
What do  you  think?
Do you like this color?  It's called apple  green.

Here it is all ready to use.  I'm  happy  I found it. Yard sales are  great !

Thanks for stopping by !

I'm liking up with Susan at   BNOTP  for Metamorphosis Monday !

Please feel  free  to drop a  comment,  I love them.  Jules
