Hey gang, I wanted to go ahead and post my DIY Tutorial on the Vintage Printers Tray here on my blog for those of you who had missed it.
I love how you used this type tray, especially how you used the damaged parts to your advantage in making larger spaces.
Today we are going to play with the Portrait collection and with a little elbow grease and some spray paint we are going to turn this old worn out tray into something beautiful for the home. Since most the pieces came together to create 1x4 rectangles, there really wasn't a whole lot of space “inside” the tray to place items.
Now you certainly should prime your piece beforehand if it is older wood with stain similar to this and you'll want solid coverage. So, after we finished removing the damaged spots, we left them open and used wood glue to fill in the empty notches to ensure the remaining pieces were secure. I wanted my tray to still have a shabby vintage feel to match the vintage vibe of Portrait, so I chose not to prime my tray. Now you don’t need help to do any of the “fixing” of the tray as everything can easily be done by one person, alone.
I used a small piece of sandpaper to “knock down” the edges a bit to make it feel a bit more worn. I wasn’t too concerned with the coverage of paint on the inside of the tray since it was going to be covered with paper anyway.
