Bombay Tray Makeover [Lacquer Thinner Transfer]

 I almost forgot to take a before picture of this Bombay tray. I found it at a thrift store for $5.  
After two coats of Annie Sloan's Old White- I distressed the tray on the edges and sanded the center to prep it for the Lacquer Thinner transfer. I found this graphic at The Graphics Fairy. I made a toner based copy, not ink jet of the graphic and taped it face down with Frog Tape. I used a cotton ball to add the Lacquer Thinner to the graphic. 
This is how the inside of the tray looked right after the transfer. You can see the Lacquer Thinner is still drying.

 Sorry for the shadow on tray in this photo. 
Thanks for stopping by!
