I currently replaced my light over my large Island bar place. So I had to update my spherical lazy Susan to a square tray and sure I constantly start looking through my candies first I attempt to use what I even have instead then purchase. I had this long strong timber tray that we might put on the mattress between us to keep our Sunday morning coffee. It turned into large enough to preserve my haul of fruits and vegetables I typically bought at grocery store. I had purchased two cake plates that someone tried to paint But they failed so I went to paintings.
Here is a photograph of the beginning of the tray it’s miles big and sturdy the handles had been first rate and had no harm so I will reuse them.
luckily the tray isn’t in terrible situation so I can get rid of handles and gently sand out foremost gouging in wooden.
I had bought those cake trays on the thrift save 1/2 off one changed into 2.Ninety nine and one become 2.50 so I simplest paid $1.50 and $1.25 for them. Someone had attempted to paint them however didn’t absolutely finish or prep them effectively so they had some peeling and such.
One of them changed into tall and one turned into low so it gave it stability to take a seat in my tray. Since I changed into getting the tray equipped I figured I may as well paintings on cake plates whilst I became watching for the one of the tray to dry.
I have gotten to the factor that I use liquid sand over my metal,wooden etc some thing finish it might be just to make sure that paint sticks to some thing. You just by no means understand whilst you buy used who did what and what they tried to do to that piece. Nothing is worse than taking all of the time and strength to color something most effective to discover that there was some thing below it that it might now not adhere to. The wooden tray and the metallic cake plates both get a coat of this prior to portray.
If you haven’t observed I’m a regular at the thrift save, I continually attempt to discover products that I can implement in my repurposing on half charge day. I try and maintain my fee down at the same time as doing the tasks otherwise no money to be made if I do resell it.
I Really favored the bottom of the taller cake plate so I determined I would go away it the off-white and paint the pinnacle a tan. Started taping off the base and it become easiest just to take a grocery bag and tape it around the base so it didn’t get painted on.
While my spray paint become drying I connected the legs to the tray. I measured a 1/2 inch in changed into wherein my screw an opening become.
I actually marked the leg base and then measured a half inch in. Matched my drill bit to the scale of the screws and drilled a hollow for the legs to be connected and screwed to like directly into the base of the tray.
I already just like the tray and I haven’t even painted it but. Now it become time for me to go into my paint cupboard and then decide what shade I desired to color it. I had a beige chalk paint I idea could paintings best.
0 I like to dry brush paint it’s so easy and gives it a lot man or woman.
1 Because I applied a liquid sander I don’t wanna paintings the paint tomuch so I usually let the first coat set after which pass returned in with my accent colours.
2 While my tray became drying I removed the painters tape test the tops of my cake plates and the whole lot become ideal. My new favored color is this Matt aqua. Such a lovely coloration
3 I thought I could publish a picture of the colours if all people else had a passion for that Matt aqua. All I can say is that I try to choose up my paint secondhand cheap or on clearance So there’s no rhyme or purpose whether it’s krylon a rustoleum.
4 I in reality just like the coloration and the streakiness of the dry brushing but I thought I could add a pair extra colorings just to make it mixture into my cake bites extra.. Are used people art medium for the brown aged look and Delta Crema coat Cape Cod blue.
5 I had Annie Sloan wax so I went over the entirety with the wax and buffed it out. Again it become Annie Sloan wax simply due to the fact that’s what I had in my cupboard. You can use your preferences.
So there you have it my stability of my high and low and only a outstanding amusing middle tray that works amazing with my island. The vacations coming round I’m beginning to pick out up those trays and maybe make some for my buddies and circle of relatives. Well that’s it , let me recognize what you suspect.
