Before the transformation this tray was in a local thrift store for $7. It’s design said “country kitchen.”
First, we stripped the paint and then stained it with Cabot Custom Tint in Moonshadow. After it was stained, I cut a piece of metallic cork wallpaper left over from our guest room and had a piece of glass cut to fit the tray. Now, it not only holds art books and vintage art pieces, but can serve drinks and snacks in a pinch.
