DIY Home Décor – Ivory Tray

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

Ready for another DIY home décor idea? A rustic tray has an upscale update with paint and marbleizing spray.

In preparation for the photography and video of our home before it goes on the market soon, I am rushing to finalize some home accessory projects. Here is a quick, easy update of a rustic wooden tray.

This Sierra Pacific Crafts Wood Tray with 2 Handles is 18 in. x 10 in. x 1.75 in. It has cut-out handles on the short ends and is stained dark brown. The tray has a county look by itself and can be painted, distressed, stenciled, stamped, and embellished in a variety of ways.

I chose to paint the tray with DecoArt Americana Décor Satin Enamels Linen and embellish it with Krylon Marbelizing Spray Gold Chiffon to match other projects in the living room – such as the ones shown below. Links to the blogs are shown under each image.

DIY Home Décor – Marbleized Coasters

When the tray was painted and marbleized, I wanted to add some type of protection on the bottom so the painted tray would be lifted slightly off the coffee table. I have used sticky-back felt dots and small rubber bumpers options for this purpose. Recently, I took a wool appliqué class at the Quilt Market in Portland and discovered another option – Needle-Grip-It by Colonial Needle. These little transparent dots adhere to your finger and thumb pads to help pull a needle and thread through fabric – but they also make great clear dots for protecting furniture!

After spraying the tray with acrylic sealer and applying some Grip-It dots on the back, I added other accessories, including the marbleized coaster set, to the tray for the coffee table in the living room. Now it is ready for its close-up!
