Coastal Style Tray Makeover

Hi, guys!!

Welcome to another Thrift Store Challenge post!! If you remember, I’ve paired up with 20 other talented ladies to bring you a monthly Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge. Each month we will create a new home decor piece from an item(s) we’ve found at a thrift store, yard sale, resale shop etc. There is no budget or specific theme so we are free to let our creativity run wild! Last month I showed you an upcycled wall hanger and the previous one our play kitchen makeover.

On one visit to the thrift store, I found a cute bamboo cane tray that had seen better days. We are setting up the patio in the new house and I was sure it would look great there, it just needed some cleaning and painting.

I guess it spent a lot of time outdoors but apart from that it was in good shape. I took my white DIY chalk paint and added some blue and green to get this aqua color. I really love summer and all these bright colors.
