Tray Makeover for the Holidays

 

  Striped-Tray-with-Scotch-Bl

The Holidays are here and I wanted a new tray for styling my dresser.

Tray Makeover using Scotch Blue Tape

In the upper L. hand corner, you can see how the tray looked when I picked it up from Goodwill the other day.

Here’s how I gave it stripes:

1. I gave it all a quick sand with sandpaper above 300 grit.

2. Next, I sprayed the bottom with Gold Medal Spray Paint. (My fave gold spray paint. You can pick it up at Micheals).

3. Then I used ScotchBlue TM Painter’s Tape Delicate Surface with Advanced Edge-Lock TM Paint Line Protector  (orange colored label) to tape lines in different directions. The arrows show where I switched directions.

4. I then pulled off alternating tape pieces, and use a razor to cut away the edges.

5.  Lastly, I sealed it with Polyurethane or another sealer. Use water-based if you don’t want yellowing.

Stripes-Scotch-Blue-Tray

I also used my finger to add some gold tempera paint around the outside edge.

Striped-Tray----Creatively-

I love how crisp the lines came out! No bleeding what-so-ever.

Tray Makeover Before and after

So much better than the original.

I will be a fun one to use for the holidays!

* ScotchBlue provided the ScotchBlue TM Painter’s Tape Delicate Surface with Advanced Edge-Lock TM Paint Line Protector for this project, but the opinions and project are all mine.

Healthy Eats for the Week — (Grain Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free)

These are the Healthy Eats for the past two weeks actually. I think last week got away from me.

There have been some winners and losers.

Good thing my husband is a goat and will eat the leftovers regardless.

Living Room Progress this Month

Living Room Progress over the past year has been……slow.

What can I say? Sometimes I look around that room and shake my head that’s it’s not finished (considering finishing it really wouldn’t take that long). Sometimes life, (and essential outdoor projects) crowd this room out.

…and I have to realize that it’s often a good thing.

So, let’s take this room from the top shall we?

The beginning….
