I needed something to put on my new round coffee table. Something to protect it, be functional and look pretty.
The solution was to find something round! I popped into Home Goods and went looking for a large charger plate or low profile bowl. I just did not see what I wanted. Then in the clearance section I tripped on this horrendously ugly metal platter:
I mean it is not pretty. But – it was the right size, low profile and I love that it is metal. Then I flipped it over and saw the price. For that price – I could play with it!
So I picked up some of THIS

I realized… I should have primed this first. So I added a few layers of this:
The reason I like this product:
Now – look how pretty it is. And the bonus is – the texture of the paint splatters created texture on the tray.
Guess What! I bought 2!! I have one for the coffee table and I have one for my oval dining room table too!
I like that I have a base now for my table decor for easy change ups. I also added some felted stick on feet to keep my table from scratching.
The moral of this post – don’t pass by ugly things that are priced right – they could be perfect!!
