I have had this tray for a while...last year I did this to it...
And it was ready for a change!
Also I had a bunch of plastic I found at the thrift store
that I've been using for silhouette cutter mats...here.
With the thought that I would use them for stencils someday.
I know they sell sheets of thick plastic for stencils at places
like Hobby Lobby and Lowes...
I cut out a Moroccan background on the silhouette cameo...
And then traced it with sharpie onto my plastic.
Then I cut it out with an x-acto knife and tiny tip scissors...
I sprayed the back of it with Krylon repositionable adhesive.
this stuff...from hobby lobby for about $8...
worth every penny, but use a coupon!
Then positioned it on my wood tray.
Which was removed from the metal,
painted light blue and dry.
I used white paint and a stipple brush and dabbed in the spaces.
I went over it twice, then removed the stencil while the paint was still wetish.
I waited for the paint to dry before going on to the next section...
Time consuming, yes. Good thing it was a serving tray and not the wall!
The edges weren't super crisp...so I touched up a bit with
a paintbrush and then lightly sanded it. Then wax sealed it.
