Coffee table tray

After we moved the coffee table back into the living room I told Chris that we needed to find a coffee table tray to put on it.  A lot of the reasons the table got scuffed up was because we would just toss the remote controls and iPads on the table.  Finding a coffee table tray that worked wasn't that easy though.  We looked all over and we finally decided that we would probably have to make one or find one at an antique store or flea market.  We went to Mena this Saturday to check out Chris family's new consignment shop, which if you're ever there is called The Allure Consignment make sure and check it out.  While we were there we wandered around downtown Mena and we found a coffee table tray at one of the antique stores.  It wasn't for sale but the guy sold it to us anyways.  We liked the shape but I didn't like the wicker part of it.  So we decided to spray paint it red, give it a little distressing to match the coffee table and add some fabric to cover up the wicker.  I think that it turned out pretty chic looking for something that we found at an antique store!

Here's what it looked like before we started.
The completed project!
