The humble $15 Kmart folding serve tray got a fab upgrade when a passionate interior decorator transformed it using leftover paint and tiles.
Jo Marie Borrello from Perth is a huge fan of the Hamptons look and wanted to give the Kmart tray a makeover.
“All I really did was paint it, and add on some leftover marble tiles from my build, and now it matches my home perfectly,” she says.
First, Jo lightly sanded every part of the tray and dusted it off, followed by a coat of Dulux primer.
She used a roller to smooth everything out, and once the primer had dried she repeated the process with two coats of white paint.
Lastly, she used Bianco Carraro mosaic tiles and a heavy adhesive to decorate the surface of the tray.
The makeover is perfect for a weekend project and you can also check out Jo’s instructions in the DIY highlights on her Instagram.
Jo has styled her folding tray with a beautiful decanter and candle but it would make the perfect serving tray for a special breakfast too.
