Mod Podge Tray

I finally jumped on...the bandwagon, that is. I've been seeing cute trays transformed with a little scrapbook paper and mod podge. Well I have several old trays that are in my closet. This one I tried to transform with chalkboard paint.

This picture is directly out of the closet so you can see it hasn't been used. Dust has overtaken it.
I really do need a tray to use, because this whole summer I have tried to haul all my things for an outdoor meal in my arms. Why am I not using a tray? Because it is so ugly, it got hidden away in the closet. NO MORE! Cute tray on the way! (That rhymes, Ha)
Removed the handles.
Spray painted the tray and these cute black and white poka-dot letters with brown spray paint.
Covered the bottom of the tray with brown and blue stripe scrapbook paper. I tore the edges because I wanted a kind of scrabby look. (I know scrabby isn't a word, but I know you know what I mean.)
With a different, but compatible, paper I made this little sign.
Glued letters on with Mod Podge.
Spray painted this little flower, I found in the craft closet, brown also. The sign just needed something.

This ribbon was also in my closet and added a cute little design.
Mod Podge is my friend. I really like how it turned out. This one won't go in the closet!

  1. So cute! And it's serving double duty too - as cute decor when not in use.

  2. this came out great! love the pattern u picked with teh color of the tray.

  3. That is adorable. I love it! Maybe I should do that to my fugly one downstairs (that we still do use despite it's fuglyness).

  4. Super cute idea! I just found you through House of Smiths and to read that you hate Halloween, say it isn't so? I am the queen of Halloween! Stop on over to my blog I started putting up my Halloween and I'd love for you to see how fun it can be!


  5. Very adorable. But I kinda liked the chalkboard idea, too! lol.
