I bought this tray at a thrift store a long time ago thinking it would be a great item to repurpose. It wasn’t something that would go with my decor, but I loved the detail on the sides and thought, with a little paint, I could make it a beautiful piece for my home.
Since we are all home right now – and I hope you are all doing well – I pulled it out of my garage, cleaned it up, and got out my chalk paint.

I used Home Decor Chalk paint in Cascade to paint my tray. I painted 2 coats using a paint brush, making sure to let it dry completely between coats. Then I dry brushed Americana Décor Acrylic Chalky Finish Paint in Everlasting over the entire tray to highlight the detail on the sides of the tray. I finished it off with 2 light coats of matte sealing spray, letting it dry between coats.
I am so excited with how it turned out!
I’ve styled it for Easter here, but my head is swimming with ideas for other holidays and every day decor. 🙂
