"new" tray

Hello friends and welcome back again.
Today I have a before and after project. 
I found this tray in my shed when I was cleaning it out.

It was ugly and dirty but I had a plan for it.
I'm redoing my kitchen with the colors red & turquoise. 
Those are also the colors that I'm using on my outside garden accents.
SO I knew when I was done with it this tray would match in both places...ya me!!

SO I washed it up and gave it a few good coats of spray paint in a nice bright red color. Then I decoupaged some pretty papers to it that have red and turquoise colors in them. I brushed on a few coats of Mod Podge to help seal the papers, then I sprayed all of it with three really good coats of clear spray paint. I have found that a good quality clear spray paint it the best thing to use to seal my projects. I've been using it for years and haven't had a problem with it. 

Here is my finished tray:

I'm really happy with the way that it turned out. The colors are really bright and just what I wanted. I can't wait to find more "junk" to finish decorating my kitchen with.
