I’m not quite sure if this is considered a hack or an upcycle.
I’m a pathetic excuse for a DIY blogger, aren’t I?
I was definitely up-cycling these trays into something better, but I guess I’m also hacking them too?
I settled on a hack.
Because it sounds more scandalous.
And I’m nothing if I’m not scandalous.
If you only knew the half of it…..
Aren’t they so pretty?
Don’t they look expensive?
Don’t shatter my dreams if you don’t like them.
I am in love with them and just know they will look fabulous on my coming-soon bar cart.
So, seriously, these took less than 15 minutes to hack. They already came in those super cute green and blue colors.
And they also come in pink and yellow colors as well.
To do these, I took a gold Sharpie paint pen (affiliate link), and just ran it along the lines, edges, and corners of the tray.
Yup, real hardcore DIY stuff, y’all.
Each tray has little dots, so with the green one, I just pressed my marker over the dots to make the polka dot pattern.
Wouldn’t these be fabulous little gifts too?
I picked these up just last week and they had tons of them, so I’m sure you can still get some.
If you hurry.
Me too. Some, myself included, would even call me a tray whore. You can see the evidence for yourself:
This DIY Monogram Tray would make a fab Christmas gift as well.
With this navy and white chevron tray makeover, I showed you the easiest way ever to do a chevron pattern. Ever.
This vanity tray was once stuck in 1988 and barely made it out alive or through the half-off Goodwill day.
Like what you see?
