Bring Those Ugly TV TRAYS Back to Life DIY

Take those ugly TV trays and breathe new life with paint and stenciling
these were painted cream then I used a piece of lace and used turquoise spray paint. Definitely revived that old birch color.
Before and After
These were painted and then I brushed black glaze then stenciled birds.

  • Did you put a top coat on these. Have you had any problems with the paint coming off where the legs crisscross when using them. We use ours every weekend and am worried the paint will scratch off, but I really want to redo them to match our nautical theme.

      Brushed with what? I'm sorry I dont understand is there some place you have instructions and exactly what you used to make them so beautiful? You did a fantastic job!
