DIY Serving Tray Makeover:
I found this old serving tray hanging on a nail in our basement stairwell. We’ve been in this house quite a while and I’ve never noticed it. lol! In my defense, I’m talking about the dark creepy stairwell to the 80+ year old scary basement (I prefer to use the newer stairwell).
before: scratched up
It was the perfect project to try out the new chevron pattern Shape Tape from FrogTape which also comes in a wave and scallop pattern. FrogTape sharp paint lines and fun patterns…gotta love that!
Both sides of the try got a good spray of paint + primer in gold. I let it cure/dry for a few days.
To get a perfect chevron zig zag, you’ll need to cut identical pieces (not just cut off continuous pieces from the roll of Shape Tape).
Then peel away one side of the backing…
smooth into place…
and remove the other side of the backing and smoothing the adhesive into place.
Be sure that all tape edges are secure…
I taped up the handles so they’d remain protected/gold too…
then sprayed a top coat of “ocean breeze” by Krylon and removed the tape once the spray paint dried for a couple of hours. Nice crisp paint lines!
Ta-da! Love it. Although Bri thinks it’s a pretty tray with “bacon” decals. Hey, I love bacon so all is well! 😉
Now it’s a serving tray that coordinates with our guest room…
Serving trays are so fun to makeover. I still use the one I did a few months ago all.the.time. Trays make great photo props.
Great for not only serving, but more often – displaying vignettes on a coffee table or side table.
