Upcycled Tray 2.0: Marble-ous!

 The last time I upcycled this tray was in 2014. It was a thrift store find that got a  chalk paint and map-scrap makeover.  Miss High School claimed it for her room and there it stayed.
Until she decided to let it go but I just couldn't.  It languished by my letter board for awhile.
 I knew I wanted to add more marble accents to the basement and I had some leftover marble contact paper from this project so my plan came together.
 Once again I used chalk paint to paint the sides and edges of the tray.
Since I was covering a dark color with a lighter one, I needed about 3-4 coats.  I didn't worry about taping off the center because I would be covering it.
 Then I added the marble contact paper and smoothed it out the best I could.   I had just enough with only a little excess to cut off.
 There are a few bubbles but they don't bother me.
I'm happy with the freshened up look!  Since I already had the paint and contact paper it was a zero cost makeover!

I absolutely love it and that it was zero cost. Trays are so awesome and I am marble crazy. Great job!

Oh I love this tray. I am always looking for trays of some kind when thrifting. Half the time I have no clue what I might do with them or where I will use them. LOL! Love how this project turned out. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

I LOVE IT! I want to find a serving tray - I don't have one! It's on my need list!
