Make a metal and lace party tray for your shabby chic home. This gorgeous tray is a mix of industrial galvanized metal with the romantic feel of lace. Perfect for parties or even your home decor. I used white lace but you can customize this one with laces of different colors as well.
Supplies needed to make this metal and lace party tray:
- EnviroTex Lite Pour-On High Gloss Finish
- Ultra Seal Multi-Purpose Sealer / Glue
- Galvanized Tray
- Mixing cup
- Measuring cups
- Stir sticks
Start by cutting your lace to size for the bottom of your tray. I left a decorative edge on one end.
Then use the Ultra Seal Multi-Purpose Sealer / Glue to glue the lace to the bottom of your tray. Allow this to dry completely.
Go over the top with the sealer with a heavy coat once dry. Then allow this top coat to dry completely before continuing.
Once dry, start measuring and mixing your EnviroTex Lite Pour-On High Gloss Finish.
Be sure to use the two cup mixing procedure that is described in the package instructions. You will also need to wear gloves and follow all safety precautions.
Once completely mixed, pour over the entire surface of your tray. Allow bubbles to rise to the top and pop them according to the package directions. You can blow on them or even use a torch to pop them. I find it helpful to run my stir stick over the lace to release the surface tension and help the bubbles rise. There are several methods to pop bubbles and you can use any of those. Then allow to cure in a place where the tray can be level.
Once cured, you have a party tray that you can use over and over again! Serve up breakfast on the porch or drinks for a crowd.
Be sure to make a metal and lace party tray for your home! This project is great is you love a little industrial with a little shabby chic mixed in!
This is a fun project that you can customize to your needs!
