So I got this tray from IKEA for about $8.
So i started by taping the tray so I could spray paint the edges. I wanted the inside to still be easy to clean so I didn’t paint it. I used a trash bag and masking tape to do this:
After that I spray painted it with that silver spray paint I am obsessed with. (Remember this project? 😜) It took two coats to get a good cover on it.
I very carefully peeled the tape of when it was dry. Be VERY careful doing this, if the paint is too wet or you pull on the tape unevenly it could mess up the paint job.
After I did that, I gathered up the things I wanted accessible at the table. I grabbed my napkin holder, salt and pepper shakers, butter dish with a butter knife, my sugar bowl, and my French press. For decoration I added the boquet I held at my sister-in-laws wedding. (You may recognize it from my record player display post! It has a new home now!)
My napkin holder was a little DIY project itself. It used to be this really ugly red color when I picked it up for less than $2 at Dollar General. A quick coat of spray paint later and it look like this:
But after a little contact chalkboard paper and a little writing they look like this:
After arranging all of my items on my tray, it looks great!
Until next time,
