I had an old tray laying around and it really needed a new look. At the same time I was anxious to add some more color and decor to our outdoor space.
Extra Large Outdoor Serving Tray
The first thing I did was to paint the tray a deep blue color to match the accessories on our deck. This blue is in the rug, the pillows and I even used it to update the tops of a few lanterns.
I used a pouncing tool and a large feather stencil to stencil a couple of feathers in the center of the tray. This is the first time I've used a large pouncer with a handle that I found at the craft store and it worked very well.
I used a chalky white paint for the feathers them let the feathers dry overnight. In the morning I added a couple coats of Fusion Mineral Paint sealer on the tray to protect it from the elements.
I let the sealer dry overnight and my tray was ready for the deck!
Here is the finished tray!
I recently built an outdoor coffee table with pressure treated lumber. You can read all about that project by following this bold link.
The old tray now has a new look that matches my deck decor beautifully.
It's so easy to create a beautiful deck area by matching the colors and designs in your decor.
