A few months ago, I was making my usual weekly stop into Goodwill, when I came across the cutest breakfast in bed tray. It was dark red and $5, which seemed expensive to me (for a thrift store, at least!) but I saw potential. I debated painting it white or black, my usual colors, and using it in the kitchen or the screened porch, but then I thought it would also make a cute piece for my daughter’s room, which we’re currently updating with pops of watermelon pink (read my first post on her room HERE). Enter my trusty can of spray paint…I used Krylon’s “Watermelon” gloss and gave it a couple of coats. Here’s how it turned out:
When I first sprayed the top, it looked a little bare, so I used my Silhouette Cameo and some white vinyl to make a monogram to put on top. The font is a free one called “Contribute” and it’s one of my favorites for monograms. My daughter is a Francophile and wants to bring a little bit of Paris into her room, too, so I debated putting something French on the tray, but I want to avoid “Paris Overkill” if at all possible!
The more I get to know this little tray, the happier I am that I spent so much $$ on it. The legs fold under and secure so it can be used as a regular tray, too, if we ever want to put it on top of her bookshelf or desk as a display piece.
I’ll continue to share pieces from her room as we go, and hopefully we’ll have the full reveal for you in a week or two!
Thanks for stopping by.
