I think I’ve mentioned in previous posts that I like shopping at Ross for home goods. You just can’t beat the prices. And since I tend to do a lot of tweaking / editing to my furnishings, it doesn’t matter too much if the pieces often aren’t exactly what I need.
This tray table is a great example. Priced at $29.99, it was a deal I couldn’t pass up even though the colors didn’t go with my decor. The bones were good enough and that was all that mattered. When I buy pieces for the purposes of repainting / refinishing / repurposing, I always check to make sure that the item can be easily taken apart. After inspecting the tray table, I confirmed that I’d just need to remove a few screws to get the tray and handles off. Easy.
For this project, I selected a champagne colored spray paint (Rustoleum Metallic Champagne Mist) for the base of the table. For the tray, I went with a robin’s egg blue (Rustoleum Robin’s Egg).
I disassembled the tray table and applied two coats of the spray paint to each part of the table. Let it dry for a solid 24 hours and then re-assemble.
