Its all done!!!!! My Alpha Printers Tray that is!!!! Its been a year long journey and I am so glad that I persevered with it.
I didn't decorate the tray itself as after cleaning it I found that it was oak. I also kept the little bakelite knob as its integral to the original old tray.
I shall be participating in The Craft Barns 2017 challenge so I hope to see you there. Happy New Year to you all xxx
