~ Coffee Station ~

I found this tray a long time ago for almost nothing but never decided what I wanted to do with it.  My daughter wanted to create a coffee station so we decided to use this tray and I spray painted it orange.  I know, a lot of folks would have left it white ~ :-)

There were a couple of damaged spots on it but with the paint you can't really tell...and, it adds character, right?  The color of the paint is "Fire Orange" Satin by Rustoleum. It sprayed on beautifully!

I had already started painting when I remembered to take a photo


Isn't she pretty?



And here she is in her new home...my daughter's home!  



Area just to the right...notice the ladybug night light and the one under the cupcake cover?  "Ladybug" has always been one of my nick names for my daughter. :-)


I hope that one day she will allow me to showcase their home.  You would absolutely love it!

I love it orange Pat - it's refreshing to see a pop of color!!!
I tend to always stick with neutrals and my kids say " it's boring! "
Great job
Hugs,

I think the orange really pops on your white counter. I also think that tray would be pretty whatever color you paint it!!

The tray is much better in red. I like having stations. It makes me get organized and I have a rice station because we are rice freaks. thanks so much for visiting with me, olive

This looks so nice and tiday. I must find a tray to go under my coffee machine, it just holds it all together doesn't it. The colour is great, it actually brings out the pattern I think :)
