DIY Tray from a Thrift Store Find
Step One: Find a Wooden Tray
The good news is that thrift stores are overrun with cast off picture frames. I discovered this wall art several years ago.
It has hung in the kitchens of two different houses and has been knocked off the wall more times than I can count. All for corners are damaged.
But that’s what makes it the perfect candidate for a front porch makeover!
Before you head to the thrift store take a few minutes to check your home for a wooden frame that would work.

Step Two: Add Color with Spray Paint
Take a look through your spray paint stash to see what colors you might already have. I love Krylon’s spray paint in Island Blue.
As you can see if matches the plastic planter and picks up the color in the front door doormat.
Step Three: Decorate the DIY Tray
Once the tray has dried, it’s time for the fun part: Decorating!
I placed a battery operated lantern, a candle, and a milk glass bowl filled with seashells on the tray.
This DIY tray is just one of the ways our front porch was updated. I’d love for you to pop over to check out all the Front Porch Decorating Ideas.
