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.
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!
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!
Have you done any fun spray paint updates recently?
