{DIY} Gold Stripe Tray

February 3, 2014

Finding new patterns is always a treat for me.  I have so many images of random things that inspire me.  I recently decided to use a fabric pattern that I found on Creature Comforts Blog on a bamboo tray that I purchased at Walmart.


I love how the stripes are uneven and organic.  With that inspiration, I went to my studio and started creating.

DIY Gold Stripe Tray-A Walmart bamboo tray gets turned into something special with some blue painters tape and gold spray paint.

With some leftover packing paper, I blocked off one-third of the tray and taped down a straight line.  On the exposed two-thirds, I used blue tape that I cut both edges of to re-create that organic stripe effect.  Sprayed with gold paint, and then repeated on the unpainted third.  I reused the uneven cut edge tape pieces on this side because cutting the tape was a bit of a pain.  Spray, spray, spray.

The tray now has a totally different feel and fits perfectly into my living room.
