I saw this tray at Target on clearance and although the numbers on it weren't exactly my style, I thought it had potential. At only $5.98, marked down from $19.99, the price was low enough for me to experiment on.
I first removed the back of the tray.
I used this primer and sprayed a light coat.
I sprayed about two coats of primer letting it dry in between.
Once that was dry, I sprayed it with this yellow spray paint.
It took several coats. It was 105 degrees outside so by the time I sprayed one coat, it was basically dry enough for me to spray another one
After I was done, I waited a day before putting it back together.
Remember what it looked like before? Here's a reminder
And now, it looks like this:
It looks so different from what it started with. I really love the canary yellow. I thought of using it in the office as a tray for drinks or the remote control. Ignore the ottoman, it will get a new do when I find the right fabric. The legs will need a new color as well.
I could also use it to add yellow to the opposite side of the room by placing it on the desk under the lamp.
I haven't decided exactly where to place it, but I love the color so much.
