While perusing the isles of Ross in hopes to find a bargain, I spotted a large black lacquered tray that was in need of some TLC. It was beat up, of course the wrong color, but the price tag said only $7.99 so I purchased it without thinking twice!
I sanded the tray, cleaned it up with soap and water and then let it dry. Next I used a coat of spray primer, and then spray painted it two coats of glossy white. To make it extra durable and also to give it that laquered look that I love so much I sprayed it with a clear gloss to finish it off.
psssst! Want to know a secret? I'm not the best at giving step by step tutorials, but if you are looking for a great place to find directions on how to paint just about anything in your home (from cabinets to furniture and accessories and everything in between) Young House Love is my go-to resource!
