DIY Pedestal Tray

DIY pedestal tray, pedestal, silver trays

I have a lot of silver trays.  Seriously, piles of them.  This is one: 

It's so cute, but clearly needs some serious elbow grease. That sounds a little like hard work doesn't it? Yep it does, so instead, I decided to turn it into a pedestal, and took a trip to Home Depot and bought a can of spray paint. 

All I did was give the tray a good wash with warm soapy water and let it dry (for 5 days ~ but one hour may suffice). 

I took a tea light holder and glued it to the bottom of the tray with E6000.

Then I gave the new pedestal two coats of yellow paint and primer-in-one spray paint.

(Sure, it probably ruined any value of the tray, but it's so cute now.

Not sure if I'll use it for fruit, or for holding my rings when I'm washing my hands.  

Cuz I really did have to wash my hands.
