I’ve had this tray table hanging around for a long time. It’s been in storage for a few years and it was either time to update it or get rid of it.
I was able to use things I already had so the update cost me absolutely nothing. I used Krylon Metalliac Silver spray on the table legs. I always start by spraying things upside down first to make sure all parts of the project are covered well.
It’s time to say good-bye to the rooster and the lovely dark plaid. It served us well for quite a few years. If you follow me on Instagram you already saw the tray. I share project sneak peeks, giveaways, family activities, and other fun things. I hope you’ll follow me if you aren’t already!
Once I painted the tray a solid color I could see all the imperfections, apparently the plaid was hiding all the little dents and dings. I used to Rustoleum Summer Squash to paint the tray.
I decided the top needed something more. I wanted to add silver polka dots to it but had run out of silver spray paint so I used silver Sharpie markers. I traced 1″ circles randomly around the tray, okay not too randomly but I didn’t measure them.
Then I colored them in. I love how it turned out. If you want a perfect pattern you could easily measure between the dots or make a stencil.
I used a Kilz clear coat to seal the paint and marker, especially since the kids are going to be using it.
I really love how it turned out. I put it in the upstairs loft area. The kids hang out up there and it’s a perfect place for them to place their drinks and popcorn on movie nights.
I’m slowly adding things to their space upstairs, but I’m trying to do it for free so it may take a while. See the dresser on the very left side? What color should I paint it?
