A few months ago I spray painted a wooden tray we had in an effort to lighten it up. It was an improvement at the time but really ended up just B-O-R-I-N-G. It was time for a better spray paint makeover!
I started by removing the hardware and priming the tray with Valspar White Primer.
I primed the handles as well and liked the grey tone they turned.
I waited just about five minutes and sprayed it with a coat of Gloss White Rustoleum that I had leftover from my DIY Ceramic Vase project. Then came the hardest part-I used masking tape to mark out a chevron pattern on the bottom of the tray and covered the sides with paper.
I sprayed the tray bottom with Valspar Gloss Tropical Oasis and let it dry for two hours before attempting to remove the tape.
I had only two minor spots where the paint came off…I fixed those with a White Out pen! I’m sure I could have used acrylic craft paint too but a White Out Pen worked well enough for me! (Sorry for the blurry pic-my camera battery died on me mid-project so I had to use my phone!)
I love the way the chevron pattern turned out!!
Oh, and those two little containers in the back…they came from baby food containers!
This tray is part of my big laundry room makeover that I cannot wait to share with you later this week! I have one more project I need to finish up before I can do the big reveal but come back tomorrow to see how I made a no-sew sink skirt to dress up my ugly utility sink!
