Happy Thursday, fabulous friends! Today I have a quick and easy makeover for y’all!
I picked up this bed tray at the thrift store a few weeks back for $3:
It kind of had a coastal vibe going already, however I’d say the paint job was a little rushed, what do you think?
Ha ha no worries…I gave it a nice neutral redo:
I still had my mix of Annie Sloan’s French Linen (one part) and my DIY mix in Behr’s Bit of Sugar (two parts) out from painting my latest headboard bench that I shared last week. See that HERE if you missed it! I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
Anything to save having to wash those brushes lol…just keeping using the same one!
The original white was a perfect base for this color since it looks so pretty coming through underneath…
As I was taking these photos, it occurred to me that I haven’t really shared our master bedroom in the new house. I need to do that!
Are you surprised our bed is still not painted?? The contrast of the warm wood in here balances out my girly bedding and satisfies both my hubby and me.
Here is what the top looked like before…
And here is what it looks like now:
Look familiar? Remember this tray table I redid a few weeks back:
I still had the contact paper I used with the numbers on it that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo for that project…
I decided to use them here for a similar look. First I painted the bottom of the tray white in my Bit of Sugar by Behr DIY chalk paint (recipe HERE):
Then I arranged my numbers in random order:
And painted over them with two coats of the French Linen/Bit of Sugar mix…
When it was barely dry, I pulled all the numbers up with my silhouette tool…
Not too bad! I did have to do a couple of touch ups, and then I sanded across the surface with 220 grit sandpaper to smooth everything out. I sealed with clear matte spray sealer. I was afraid if I used wax, and this tray was used to hold hot food or beverages, that might not be a good combination.
Remember my “fresh cut roses”? Can you believe they are still alive??
Ha ha of course because they’re fakes lol. See how I made this faux arrangement HERE using faux water if you missed it!
Who delivers a tray full of food to an empty perfectly made bed??
We really only serve food in bed to the kiddos if they are sick. We pretty much quarantine them to their rooms so they don’t infect the rest of us. I should have made one of my boys pose sick in bed for these photos. That would have been much more realistic! 🙂
Thank goodness we didn’t have a whole lot of that here this Winter!
I’m glad I saved those numbers…they made for a quick makeover!
