We love finding inspiring, new ways our Metallic Paint is used by artists, DIYers and Professionals and this DIY Tray Makeover by Gabbi of Retro Ranch Reno is a beautiful example! We’re excited to share with you how she used Modern Masters Metallic Paint to create this unique look!
Where most people would see another item for the trash heap, Gabbi saw amazing potential! The cup rings were a bit of an outdated look so she decided it was best to give the tray a good sanding in order to allow for a fresh coat of stain.
Once the tray had been stained, it was now ready to be taped out.
One of the requirements for this design was that she wouldn’t need to measure a single thing. She used aluminum foil to protect the edges of the tray and eyeballed the initial pattern using various widths of stencil tape from her craft basket. At this point, you can really start to see where this project is going!
Using an X-acto knife she then carefully removed select sections to reveal the final pattern.
After the final pattern was taped out, she spray primed the tray and gave it 2 coats of Modern Masters Brass Metallic Paint.
Now the fun really begins!
After the paint had fully dried, it was time to carefully remove the tape for the final reveal!
We just love the final results of this metallic tray makeover! With just a little effort, Gabbi turned an old wooden tray into a stunning accent piece for her home!
