It’s that day of the month where I join some of my blogging friends for our themed painted furniture day and this months theme is “Words and Letters.”
I decided a TV Tray Makeover way the perfect project for this theme. I have been wanting to do something to these trays for a long time. I’ve had them for years and we still use them. Every Sunday night we order pizza and watch TV as a family and these trays come in very handy.
I had thought I was going to add a letter B for our monogram but my husband said I should put the word EAT on there.
I loved it, of course!
The TV Trays started just basic like any tray set you can buy pretty much any where.
The stencils I used are the same one’s I used last year to make my holiday signs. I like that they are cheap, easy to use and basic block letters.
I used my Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint that I already had. I didn’t want to paint the entire surface of the tray’s so I decided to paint just the stand and the stenciled word.
After the paint was dry I distressed with sand paper.
I also thought the the tray could pop up like a small table and I could use it for a snack table.
The kids always come in hungry while I am making dinner so this would be a great way to have something set out that they could just grab.
I would bet that most families have a set of these tray’s in there house, do you?
We had the metal one’s when I was a kid…remember those?
Now you have a simple project you can complete before the holidays get here.
A fun way to customize a basic item in your house.
