Happy Holiday weekend everyone!! This is the last weekend before school starts around here so I am trying to tackle as many little projects as I can before the madness begins (ha ha, I know it's just kindergarten, but it's our first time for everyday school and we're pretty excited for the adventure). Anyway, I have been looking for a tray to corral all of the stuff I keep on my coffee table. It's just easier to have it all together so if the table needs to be cleared to play a game or work on homework, we can do it one swoop. I found this one at a garage sale for.....free actually. I was buying a few other things so she threw the tray in for free :) Yay! It was a good size and while ovals are not my all time favorite shape, I thought for free, it would do the trick. It wasn't hideous before, but definitely not "me."
Well, I primed it and spray painted it white and then I taped off some horizontal stripes. I am still loving horizontal stripes. I think I always will :)
Next, I sprayed the whole thing black...
My stripes were a bit imperfect and you can see that paint probably was going to bleed under those bubbles in the tape. All ok with me :)
Here's the after shot:
The "after shot" without any stuff on it looked a bit crazy, so I figured I would show you it all done up. I love how some of the flowers showed up after I sanded it.
I loved the pretty turquoise color of the rim, so I'm glad it showed through too! I just love how old and weathered it looks!!
Oh yeah, and check out my Etsy shop soon for these spooky spiders! S-p-o-o-k-y!
Eek! Boo! Spooky! Ahhhhhhh!
