DIY Gold Chevron Tray

This past week I did a fun project that I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I’m so happy with how it turned out!

I used this tray from Crate & Barrel, but you could probably find something similar and cheaper at TJ Maxx or HomeGoods. The hardest part was the taping. You just kind of have to eyeball it {I re-adjusted the tape a lot}. I taped a mix of zig-zags and stripes then painted three coats of thin layers of Liquid Leaf and let it dry over night. When I took the tape off the next day some of the paint had leaked through {maybe I was using the wrong tape? I just used regular old masking tape}, but the uneven edges came off by scraping them gently with a butter knife.


+ Foam brush $.35
+ Liquid leaf $5.49
+ Masking tape $1
+ Tray $9.95
TOTAL: $16.79
