The inspiration for giving this plastic tray a chalk painted makeover is the June Decorating Challenge hosted in the Decorating and DIY Enthusiasts Facebook Forum. This month's challenge is Decorating With Trays and I'm so excited to be participating in this monthly challenge.
Here is a picture of what my plastic tray looked like before the makeover...
I randomly dry brushed a combination of Simplicity and Vanilla Frosting onto the sides.
With an art brush and the same white chalk paint I carefully painted the raised pattern. After it was dry I protected the tray with two layers of Tough Coat. All the products used for this project are from Country Chic Paint.
This is the perfect tray to use beside the window seat in our master bedroom - my favorite spot to read on a rainy day.
What's a Summer's Day without ice cream and a good book!
Our peonies, one of my favorite flowers in the garden, have just started to bloom. I'm crossing my fingers and toes that our Hydrangea blooms this year too.
I love our plastic tray now that it got a new life with chalk painted Bliss!
Do you have a tray that could use a fresh new look for Summer?
