thrift store finds makeover

i spent almost a full day spray painting most of my thrift store finds {and some other things i had lying around the apartment}. i didn't know how much fun spray painting could be! the pier1 trays i bought, found in this post, got an orb paint job and look amazing! 

the above photos clockwise from the top left: gluing the splinters down with super glue, the before shot of the trays, trays primed, and trays all finished and orbed {oil-rubbed bronze}.

we don't have a coffee table at the moment in our living area because our couch has two large ottomans, so i figured the trays would be perfect to eat on while husband and i have dinner and watch the game {i'm sure all you ladies can relate with the basketball going on at the moment!}.

they also have some other uses. i can display things on them, like our blue bottle collection.

i will do another post with the rest of my thrift store makeovers, this is just a preview. coming up is lots more color! 

have a happy weekend all! 

love, kbn
