NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Use the flat brush to paint the entire tray in Revive. Let dry. When dry, give the piece a protective coat of Ultra-Matte Varnish.
    Step 0 Example
  2. When dry, select decorative hardware for the handles. (You can use drawer pulls or knobs.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use a drill to drill holes where you want to attach the handles. (Make sure you use a drill bit size that is appropriate the same size as the hardware.)
    Step 2 Example
  4. Screw in the hardware at the sides of the tray.
    Step 3 Example


The Chalky Finish paints are so thick that you'll only need one coat if you paint carefully. I started by painting the inside of the tray and then elevated the tray and painted the sides.
