Chevron Tray

I'm sure you have noticed by now that trays are one of the hottest new ways to accessorize.  So, I'm jumping right on that bandwagon today with a little tray makeover.  I scored this tray for a few dollars last year after Christmas.  It started out a shiny, emerald green.  It was way too much for my liking so I sprayed it silver.  Looks ok in the picture right?  Well, in real life it is splotchy and just not what I was going for.  So I gave it a second makeover.


I sprayed it with gloss white spraypaint.  Added some chevron fabric to the bottom (I didn't use anything to adhere it, I just laid it there so it can be changed out down the road).  Then, I took some glass from a free frame I had in the garage down to Lowe's and had them cut it to the dimensions I needed.  They did it for FREE!  The glass protects the fabric and allows me to use it for serving as well as many other things.  In the future I may switch out the fabric for some fun wallpaper or even wrapping paper.

So, here it is after it's mini makeover...









Total cost = FREE because I had everything on hand.

oh my gosh!
i found this same exact green tray at my local thrift store for $0.75! I painted it white, but it's still a bit bland. I may have to add some fabric!
Great idea lady! It looks fabulous! : )
