Upcycling: tray makeover - faux tile

I gave another item from my kitchen a makeover.


This old tray had seen better days.


My original plan was to spray paint the handles and frame black and the inside tray white. I was then going to paint a simple black design on the white tray. Well, the black paint seeped onto the white, then the white onto the black. I ditched the idea and went to Plan B.

I found an image of some pretty tile online and printed out several “tiles” onto a light cardstock. I cut out the tiles and Mod Podged them onto the tray covering up the messed up paint.

I’m glad my original plan didn’t work because I love my new faux tile tray.

Etceteras: cork and tile coasters

If you have leftover tile from a house project, here’s an easy way to put them to good use.

These white tiles are the perfect size for coasters. The only problem is that a drink might slide off the coaster if it becomes damp. Solution: use little cork pads. Not only will they keep the drink in place, they’re decorative.

These cork pads are usually used to protect furniture from scratches. They’re placed on the bottom of lamps or other knick knacks.

They come in little packages and are self adhesive. Just peel them off and stick them to your tile.

Don’t forget to put some on the bottom of the tile – to protect your table.
