I found this tray at Goodwill. It was stained and not attractive, but big and beautiful at the same time. I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do with it.
Time: 2 DaysCost: $20Difficulty: Easy
I painted the tray with Waverly Chalk paint. It did take a couple of coats to completely cover the wood.
This is what it looks like with 2 coats. I did have to retouch a few spots as well. And I took the handles off.
I ended up painting the handles with Waverly chalk paint in black. Not perfectly, just good enough for some coverage, because I liked the worn look of them.
I already had these two items in my "stash" bin, and knew right when I saw the tray, that I would be using them for this. Love the two together. Cut them out of the paper they were copied onto.
Mod Podged them onto the inside of the tray. Put Mod Podge on tray, then placed each piece individually, and smoothed out any bubbles. After dry, I went over the tops again with Mod Podge to seal. Then after they were dry I distressed them just a SMALL bit with a sanding block.
I loved it but decided it needed something more to stand out. So I taped off the sides, to create a line in the middle, and painted it with the Waverly Black Chalk paint.
And put the handles back on....YES!!!!! Isn't she beautiful. The extra lines on the side just made it.
Decided to "stage" my product a bit and did a small photo shoot. Who DOESN'T love a photo shoot!!! And who doesn't love champagne!
