thrift store finds I bought. With some of the thrift store items I wanted to make a serving tray tower to display my items for my first craft show.
Here is what I used:
Here is my plan:
First, I needed to spray paint the trays and candle stick. Since the trays were in rough shape and the candle sticks were brass, I didn’t have a problem painting them white. I have always disliked brass finishes. I also find it easier to paint items if I haven’t owned the item for years and I’m not emotionally attached to it. Since these were thrift store finds, I had a clean conscience painting them.
I just used 2 coats of Rustoleum spray paint in semi-gloss white to paint the trays and candle sticks. I painted the bottoms first and when everything was fully dry, I turned it over to paint the top.
It was a little tricky to find the center of the trays so the finished piece would not be lopsided.
Originally, I used my hot glue gun to glue the trays to the candle stick. But of course on the way to setup for my first craft show, the top tray came off and I had to re-glue it with Gorilla Super Glue. But everything is holding up well now.
