I have a treat for you today- I'm trading blogs with a fabulous Tennessee girl who's going to show you a DIY project that is right up my alley! Be sure to stop by her blog and check out all the other amazing things she's done!
Hi! Thanks to Trading Blogs, today you are getting to hear from a new "Lauren", as my name is Lauren as well! I am so thrilled to be hopping over to the fabulous "Inside My Present" today from my usual spot, www.MidsouthStagers.blogspot.com. I own a home staging business in Memphis, TN and my blog is a place where I share lots of DIY, re-fashioning, and design/staging from my own home as well as an occasional client job.
Today I wanted to share with you a recent DIY project.
What I used:
A wooden tray from my closet
Acrylic paint/brush (already had)
A stencil from my craft drawer
Painters tape (already had)
A plastic cup (from my kitchen cabinet :)
First, I taped it off and gave it a spray-paint primer coat. Once that was dry, I went back over it with acrylic paint to make sure the old image was gone.
Tip: Try to remove painters tape when your paint is still a little tacky for nice lines. As for the stencil, I like to remove it immediately for the best results.
Now, for a quick reminder:
I can just see some yummy cheeses displayed on it to pair with a nice wine!
I hope you enjoyed my little project today and that it inspired you to get crackin' on some of those things collecting dust in your closet!If you love tray makeovers, check out the herringbone tray that I painted earlier this year HERE.
