Paint & Monogram a TV Tray

 TV trays are so useful. We have a set of four pine trays from a "big box store". 
Doesn't everybody have this same set?

To give this light pine wood table an "update" I used my Cricut to print out a letter printed on vinyl.
 Painted it black with chalk paint using a roll and back brush technique. I used  spray paint for the under side.
Once the paint was dry - I  peeled off the vinyl letter and sanded the edges. By wiping a dark stain into the exposed wood - I got the dark wood look I wanted.
When I fold the tray to store - the "B" is not upside down (I have done that before).
Topped with clear wax makes it have a "finished" look.
Computer stand, drink tray or perfect for smore night on the deck.

Wow, much better! I have never owned TV trays, but I must admit I do love eating in front of the TV. :)

I have this same set, and have been thinking how to change them, this is great!

Great idea for those wood trays, Holly! I did have a set of 4 in a holder but gave it to my son for his apartment when we moved. My husband has been mentioning getting more. I would definitely want to paint them and I really like the monogram idea.

Last summer at garage sales I saw these trays a couple times, passed them by. This summer I know better.

I love it! I really like the tip for using spray paint on the bottom. Why didn't I think of this? I've painted 2 of these, but hated painting the bottom!
