I had four of these trays - the cranberry red was not useful - so I kept them tucked away. Recently I gave them each a new look. Using spray paint, wallpaper samples and shelf liner
Used Rustoleum glossy white
trimmed the edge with Martha Stewart gold metallic paint. This tray is a Chic drink server
This tray is a welcome tray for guest room
This tray is a desk organizer
Family room tray to store remote controls, coasters & candle. Each tray has its own look for each room.

WOW!! That looks good. I found a nice size tray that someone had put in the trash. Been trying to come up with something to do with it. Saw this and got inspired. I already have the spray paint and some per-pasted wallpaper.

This is a great idea! I have an old tray that is currently very, very gold... wallpaper will be it's saving grace!
Please share what kind of sealer you used on the top. I would love to do this project but need to know how to protect the it as well. I'm an amateur so please bear with me, thanks. :)
