This is the tray:
I painted it a glossy bright white as step 1.
I thought it was definitely a nice breath of fresh air, but I took it one step further! I had bought some pretty decorative papers the other day at Michael's. (4 bucks for 60 papers! How awesome is that!?)
I papered the back of the tray first, just to make sure I wasn't going to totally mess it up!
And here is the front of the tray! It looks a little off center but I think that's just the photo
