Spray paint has got to be a DIY’ers best friend.  With just a simple spray of a can you can completely transform an object.  I bought an inexpensive white tray from Kmart, and with some brilliant shine gold paint, transformed it into a beautiful DIY gold tray.  See how easy it was.

Step 1 – Lightly sand the tray all over so the paint will adhere.

Step 3: Lightly spray the tray all over with a sweeping motion, then allow it to dry.  The White Knight paint is touch dry in 10 minutes, and you can re-coat between 1 – 2 hours after the first coat.  My tray only needed one coat.
