IBP: Decorating with Trays

Have you ever thought of decorating with TRAYS or crafting with TRAYS? Today I share some great Pinterest inspired ideas on how to decorate and create your own trays out of frames, cookie sheets, drawers and more! You'll be hitting your local thrift and dollar stores 
to recreate many of the projects in this episode.

And I issued a challenge to all of you in today's episode, scroll down to find out more!


Add Vinyl to a Tray
Spray Paint Dollar Store Trays
Deft Finishing Spray: This is what I use to coat spray painted
surfaces so they are food safe. It's a clear varnish, epoxy coating or shellac spray.
Add chalkboard vinyl or chalk paint to the center of the trays.
Cover a Tray or Cookie Sheet with Fabric
My Favorite Tray to date...a picture frame tray!!

Add scrapbook paper or subway art printouts to photo frame.

Disclaimer: Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration but not all pins lead to blogs. I tried to only pick those ideas that I could find the original creator and give credit to. Please take a moment and check out these great blogs because without them I wouldn't have content to talk about on the new My Craft Channel show Inspired by Pinterest.  If you've never been to Pinterest and would like to check it out, you need an invite to the site to gain access (I don't know why). Just leave me a comment with your email and I'll send you an invite. However, I cannot be responsible for the time you will be spending on Pinterest!!
