There once was a life for this boring tray table. But since the children are gone and we’ve become empty nesters.. there isn’t much use for it. The kids used it for multiple purposes..so it just sits in a corner…that is until now..I’ve decided to make good use of it for myself. So here’s a look at the poor old lifeless tray table. Very ordinary right? But.. it served its purpose for them and now it’s about to serve its purpose for me.
Time to get rid of the bland wood tone. I’ve always wanted to try chalkboard paint so this would be my first project using it. I painted the top with the chalkboard paint and painted the bottom with a hammered bronze paint. So far so good, I like how it came out.
But it still needed something to hide the squareness of the boring table.. Remember my $0.50 Sunday project ? The picture frame is ready to be used
I measured the frame and the opening fits perfectly on top of the table. Soooo, now the old tray table has a new look..It is now the guest bedroom “Welcome Station” .
I wrote a little note to let them know how welcomed they are.
The ribbon holds a spare key just in case I leave, they’ll still have access to the house.
It’s no longer sitting there to collect dust
