Bronze and Gold Outdoor Tray

I first shared this over at Domestic Superhero.

I found this metal tray at my local Michaels store and knew with a few quick modifications it could be the most lovely outdoor accessory!  Today I’m sharing how I made this guy over and turned it from odd water sayings tray to a simple and chic Bronze and Gold Outdoor Tray.

Bronze and Gold Outdoor Tray, Delineate Your Dwelling #summer 

I love to entertain and summer is the ideal time for outdoor dining, friends over for barbecues or an evening margarita and this tray works perfectly in all those situations!
Supplies:
Metal Tray
Wooden Beads (four)
Gold Paint Pen
Bronze Spray Paint

I circled the metal tray with a layer of tape at the very bottom and then covered the edges with aluminum foil.  I then gave it two or three coats of Bronze Spray Paint to cover up all the text from the original design.
After the paint was dry, I also spray painted four wooden balls and hot.glued them to the bottom of the tray.
Using my gold paint pen, I then hand drew and filled in a scallop pattern on the outside edge.

I’m such a softie for a lovely scalloped edge.

The very final detail was adding a thin gold stripe on the interior right where the bronze and the white met, just perfection!

  1. That is amazing Amy! I would never have thought of it had I seen the original! You are a genius 🙂 (oh and I would totally love to be a contributor on your Creative Inspiration board if you would have me!)

  2. I have an old metal tray desperate for a makeover, I’m just collecting ideas right now, this is lovely. Not quite the same shape as my old tray but a contender for an adapted idea. Pinning so I don’t forget when I am finally ready to tackle it (how did I manage before pinterest – I’m sure I saw something once, it was gold, or was it copper, was it scallops or triangles, were they inside or outside, what was it like again……! )
