Some of us at the COLORSHOT office would argue that breakfast isn't the most important meal of the day; it's coffee. Don't even get us out of bed unless the coffee is brewing and our mug is ready to be filled. Which brings us to our next point: since coffee is the most important part of our day, it stands to reason that a super cute, well-stocked coffee station is a MUST. So we teamed up with Grey Birch Designs for easy and affordable ideas for turning a boring (but well-loved) coffee pot on the kitchen counter into a fun rustic farmhouse style coffee station that inspires you to want to get up a little faster in the morning. A great budget find, this distressed rustic serving tray became farmhouse chic with a little help from COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paints and some sandpaper. Read on to see how Grey Birch Designs created it!
- COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paints (shown here: Blackout and Marshmallow)
- Metal tray
It doesn't matter what color your tray is, because it's easy to cover with COLORSHOT! Make sure your tray is clean and free from dust. As with all spray paint projects, you'll want to make sure you are working in a well-ventilated area. Spray a basecoat of Blackout on the tray, spraying several light coats instead of one heavy coat. Let dry between coats.
After the basecoat of Blackout has dried, spray several light coats of Marshmallow over the entire tray, letting dry between coats. Once completely dry, sand with sandpaper randomly over tray to create a distressed look.
How great does this distressed tray look as part of the rustic farmhouse coffee station makeover?! How will you set up your station?
