In case you missed it, Rachel of The Crafted Life recently released her book Hello Color! The book is a must for any color-lover (like myself!) and includes a ton of simple DIYs for adding more color to your home. Inspired by the projects, I decided to make my own version of Rachel’s catch-all tray with sticker letters. It’s amazing what a little spray paint can do!

I decorated my clear catch-all tray with pale pink paint and mint stickers saying exactly what’s in my dish…little things!

Step 1

First, remove any stickers on the tray and wipe clean. Cover your workspace with a dropcloth or papers to protect it. Apply a layer of spray paint all over the top side of the tray. Be sure to always spray paint in a safe area with proper ventilation. Let dry.

Step 2

Once dry, flip the tray over to finish painting the rest. Let dry.

Depending on the color of the tray, only one coat of paint should be necessary.

Step 3

When the paint is no longer tacky, apply sticker letters in your desired saying.

For centered words, I recommend placing down the middle letters first, then working outwards.

Place your tray near your entryway to catch all the little things you tend to leave around the house.
