My mom purchased this serving tray at a yard sale recently for a dollar. While she liked the style of the tray, she didn't like the color and how scratched up it was. I offered to fix it up for her. I decided to repaint it and line it with scrapbook paper.
Once the piece was clean and dry I painted it with two coats of primer.
Before I painted a final coat I figured out the placement and measurements of the scrapbook paper.
I used my paper cutter to cut the paper to size.
I painted two coats of satin black spray paint. I didn't bother with the middle since it would be covered with paper.
The size of the tray is longer then standard scrapbook paper so I had to use two sheets. I painted on Mod Podge and laid the paper down.
I smoothed the paper out to make sure to get all the air bubbles out.
I let the piece dry for a couple hours then spread on a thick layer of Mod Podge over the top. It goes on white but will dry clear.
I think it looks great in my moms new kitchen. I just wish I had one for myself.
