  1. Lightly sand the tray and clean off dust before painting. Paint the tray Lamp Black with the flat paintbrush. (I did not paint the back of the tray, but you can if you choose.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint the trim in Champagne Gold with the #4 round brush. (You may need to give it two coats.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Paint the polka-dots with the #2 round brush by dipping brush in Snow White and painting the dots in rows, or in a random pattern.
    Step 2 Example


You may need to paint some areas with two coats of paint for the best coverage. Use a hair-dryer between coats of paint to speed up the drying process.
