I have been wanting a candle tray centerpiece for my coffee table for a while. So I have been on the lookout at thrift and craft stores for an affordable tray that I could find cheap. I wasn’t able to find one cheap enough in the design I wanted. I kept my eyes open for one that was affordable that I could possibly redo. I was in Hobby Lobby when I came across this tray on clearance for 80% off. It had great potential and the price was right at under $3.00.
I decided that this tray would be perfect to repaint. I used simple gray chalk paint to paint this piece and a disposable foam paint brush. I already had chalk-paint on hand, but if you don’t you can find tons of DIY recipes on Pinterest.
After the paint was dried I added all these bits to get the finished look.
Stones purchased @ Dollar Tree: Cost $1.00
Votive Holder 2 pack purchased @ Dollar Tree used one: Cost$.50
Candle Rope Glass Holder: Flea Market Find: Cost $1.00
Succlent piece: Already had
Lanterns: Goodwill Find: Cost: $.50
Tray: Hobby Lobby: $2.70
So for under $10.00 I have a lovely candle tray. This is a picture at night.
