Z Gallery Insired Decor || Glam Tray


So last week I posted about these fabulous {Z Gallerie Inspired Coasters} (aka Toddler Frisbee) and today I have another fabulous project that was inspired by that same trip to Z Gallerie.
Check out our new Glammed up serving tray!!!  I like to tell people that this tray is business in the front and party in the back!
I'm gunna get a little frank here and let you all in on a little secret...I'm slightly obsessed white and Gold and Greek Keys at the moment.   I'm sure no one noticed this though...wink!
As you can see the tray was just a basic wood one from Target..I think they sell for around $13.  And now all glammed up it fit way better in the room...oh and it will look amazeballs with my {improved built-ins and covered brick fireplace}!
So here is a quick how to....this one is a no brain-er and if you craft...you probably own everything needed for this project. 
Greek Key Glam Tray Supplies List:
Tray
Primer and Paint (recommend spray paint)
Cardboard/card-stock
Exacto knife
Gold Paint Sharpie
Brad Nails (scrap-booking materials)
Super Glue
 
I cut the backs off the Brad Nails so they could be glued flush with the tray.
For the stencil I printed and enlarged an image found online and then used an exacto knife to cut out the image.   Then I traced and painted the image with a Gold Paint Sharpie Pen.   I actually bought this pen for my {Glam Frames} and was not impressed with the look...but I was so pleased with how it turned out for this project....the sharpie pen gets my approval now!
Then I glued on my brad nails in the desired fashion and voila!
I hope enjoyed this little crafty project because this might be one of the last ones for a while...I'm about to embark on some big Home DIY projects!  I'm so excited to get my power tool on!!!  
Thanks for stopping by and if you are new to the blog...feel free to follow along...all my buttons are below or on the right sidebar...I'll love you for it!
