Tiered Serving Tray and Martha Stewart Metallic Glaze

I found this at Home Depot this past week, I like that it is in a small jar with a screw on lid…there were also lots of colors, along the same line there were special finishes like crackle and several others. 
I had a few projects in mind when I bought the glaze…
My mom gave me this metal tired tray for my birthday…I couldn’t decide what color to paint it…I am not a big fan of green but I really liked this springy green color (and the paint was on clearance too, that helped!).
The glaze worked great in the details of the handle and the edges of the trays. 
Here is the before picture!  Big difference, huh?
I also used the glaze on this coral frame.  I am working on a wall of letters in my room, I think I will use this frame there. 
I am linking to these great parties!

Your tiered tray is absolutely stunning. Greens can be tricky. Your green selection with the glaze works. Hopped over from Answer is Chocolate.
