Easy DIY Painting Project
I am always on the hunt for new things to paint! When I came across this wooden tray at Joann’s and immediately fell in love with it! It’s small enough that it can be used on a table for a pretty vignette, and it’s easy to store when it’s not needed. Love it in these neutral colors that will be a fun accent to any decor. Here’s how you can make your own polkadot tray!
• 14″ Wooden Serving Tray from Joann’s Product #8162174
•Americana Acrylic Paint in Lamp Black, and Titanium White
•Americana Decor Metallics Paint in Champaign Gold
•Paint brushes: I used #15 flat paint brush 3/4″ wide, #4 flat brush 1/4″ wide and a #2 round brush
•Water, paper towels and painting pallet or paper plate
- Paint the tray with the Lampblack paint with the flat paint brush. (get it through my affiliate link here)
- I did not paint the back of the tray but you could if you choose.
- Paint the gold trim with the #4 brush. (buy thorough my affiliate link here.) The brush is just the right width to paint the edge of the top. You may need to give it two coats if needed.
- Paint the polkadots with the #2 round brush. (available through my affiliate link here.) Dip your brush in the Titanium white paint, and paint the dots in rows, or in a random pattern. Have fun!
Sometimes the simplest projects are the most interesting! I have always loved polkadots and I will have lots of places to use this tray.
For right now, it has a new home in our entryway. A vintage photo and some pretty flowers make a lovely presentation for guests. Thanks to Deco Art for sponsoring this post!
