Upcycled black tray

P1070241Inexpensive and scratched up black tray from thrift store.  FLAT black paint is a nice bonus!!  Easier to paint over.

P1070243I added some little wood ‘feet’ to raise it up a bit.  (glued on with e6000)

P1070242Let the e6000 cure overnight before painting.

P1070252Two coats of paint, then some quality time with the orbital sander.

P1070251Selected a stencil that fit the inside area of the tray.

P1070250Done!

P1070312Available for purchase in my booth at Stars Antique Mall in Portland.
