A simple and easy update to my mix-matched folding TV tray tables using some leftover paint, a little chalk paint and a stencil for a special touch.
Mix Matched Tray Table Makeover
I started by cleaning the tray tables with a vinegar and water solution to remove dirt and residue.
Then I separated the tops from the bottoms to make it easier and to ensure I got better coverage. Be sure to put all screws and pieces in a plastic bag and set aside for later.
I used my Homeright Spray Shelter (which you can find at Amazon or Home Depot) and used the Homeright Finish Max paint sprayer for a more even coverage. But a roller or brush could be used if you don’t have a sprayer.
I did the equivalent of two coats for full coverage.
After they dried, using the stencil, a craft sponge, and chalk paint I added the lettered design.
After letting the paint dry, I chose to use polyurethane spray paint to avoid having to touch the chalk paint.
After they were completely dry, I reassembled and just marveled at how beautiful they are!
