Stacy here from Hello Cupcake LLC, and today I’m thrilled to share a DIY that is sure to come in handy! (And the best part? All of the materials for this project came in well under $20!) This DIY tray is great for having breakfast in bed, and when not in use, it’s perfect for keeping your smaller items organized.
- Wooden tray (I found mine at Ross for $4.99!)
- Spray paint: two colors
- Painter’s tape (design shown used tape that was .75 inches thick)
Determine which spray paint color you would like to use as your base and which you would like to use as your pop of color. (I used white for the base and teal for the pop.) Following the directions on your spray paint can, thoroughly cover all areas of the tray with your base color. After 30 minutes, add a second coat of base color spray paint. Let the tray dry for at least 24 hours.
Once the tray is dry, use the painter’s tape to create a design. I did a mix of triangles and stripes. You can place and lift the tape, moving it as you go along to create a design you’re happy with. What’s covered by the tape will remain white while you add your pop color.
Once you’re happy with the design you made with the tape, spray paint the tray with your pop color. After 30 minutes, add a second coat of pop color spray paint. Let the tray dry for at least 24 hours.
