With our new leather ottoman...the tray we already had (that I had gotten for $6 on clearance at Target last year) was just to blaaa and blending right in...
So I headed to Walmart and picked up 2 cheapie cans of spray paint ($2.60ish per can) - One in the color of my choice and a clear coat.
Here's my one hour home accessory makeover on the cheap DIY:
Before tray & spray paint products:
Spray Paint: Krylon from Walmart in Leaf green and Clear.
1. I first lightly sanded the tray down and wiped off the sandy particles.
2. I laid out some plastic outside, set the tray on a brick (so paint didn't clump around the bottom edges) on top of the plastic and sprayed on the 1st coat. Dries in 10 minutes.
4. Repeat for coat 3 - making sure to get those corners and nooks.
5. Light spray of clear coat, final dry.
The final product:
A little more eye catching of a piece. Now off to find something else to spray paint....
