I've grown quite tired of looking at this sponge-painted tray that sits next to my stove holding my utensil jug, salt/pepper, oil, and a few other condiments.
This past weekend I decided to give it a bit of a facelift.
I thought I'd paint it black, but I couldn't find any black paint.
One thing I do have plenty of is fabric. I decided I'd cover it with fabric and a few coats of Modge Podge.
It's quite easy to do. Just cut the fabric to the size needed. I folded under my top edge to give a neater appearance. The Modge Podge is really just a glue and it holds the fabric as well as becomes the protective coating. I just use gloves and my fingers to apply the modge podge. It's white when it goes on, but it dries clear. I gave it two coats.
Here's the finished tray.
I like it a lot better now.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
