Monogram Chevron Tray


I've had this tray sitting on the kitchen counter for the last year.


On it was a couple cookbooks and the painted Ikea pot.  You can see I covered the inside with scrapbook paper that's now rolling at the corners.  I was cleaning the counters, bumped into this guy and decided it was time for him to get a little makeover.

I gave him a few coats of blue spray paint.  I had some chevron scrapbook paper laying around.  I cut it to the dimensions of the inside of the tray and adhered is using mod podge.  After that layer dried, I put on a monogram.  I had a wooden "W" in my stash.  I traced it onto red scrapbook paper, cut it out, and mod podged it on top of the chevron.





Now my tray has a new look.

  4. Cute. Scrapbook paper is always my go to to give something a new look. I redid a tray similar to yours with blue paint and scrapbook paper: http://loveyourhomewithstyle.blogspot.ca/2012/05/tray-makeover.html. I rather repurpose than throw away!
