TV Tray Table Revamp

This was just your plain tv tray table that I have had forever. They came in a set of four. Although, I think now WalMart sells them individually. I did not sand it first because I wanted it to have character. I spray it with Krylon Ocean Blue. After it dried I sanded some of it off around the edges and in various spots. I printed the letter B off of my computer on regular paper and had my son color a big square around the backside of the B with a lead pencil.  I laid the B facing up on the top of the table and traced it. Where he had colored came off when I traced so now I had my outline. I traced over it wil a fine tip sharpie and then filled it in by hand with black paint. Simple and quick project. Everyone that comes over loves it and wants to know how I did it.

I've linked up to these parties:

  1. I've got three of those tables, all in various stages of age...this would be a perfect idea to revitalize them! :D

  2. tv trays are so handy to have but such an eyesore-- LOVE the transformation. i would keep mine out all the time now ;) love!

  3. PS: we'd love for you to link this @ our weekend party :)

  4. Wow that is a great transformation! I'd use these all the time. Now I'll keep an eye out for these at the thrift store.

    I'm a Gemini too and totally have more than one project going on at once! Have a great weekend!

  5. I have a burgundy themed room and want to do this to my light colored trays? How did you get it to have such a rustic look. The sandpaper? Awesome idea! Thanks so much.
