Breakfast in Bed Beach Style

Friday was another beautiful day here in Florida so I decided to make it a beach day.  I have to pass by one of the better Goodwill stores on the way and decided to stop in.  In the room towards the back I came across this bed tray and knew I could give it just the look I was after.

I paid $7.99 which seems a bit high but I really like the wicker top.  One quick trip to Home Depot for a can of  spray paint, a little sanding  and then a few coats of spray paint and it was just like I imagined it! 

I found 4 of these blue glasses on the same GW trip ($1.99 each).

You can enjoy this tray from the comfort of  one of the twin beds in my almost completed "Beach" inspired guest room. 

More on this room in a future post.  I think a coat of white paint can transform almost anything.  Why don't you give it a try?

I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphasis Monday.

I am also joining the Spray Paint Party at Thrifty Decor Chick.

That was one drab tray! But, now it looks great! The other day I was in a thrift shop and I thought to myself "These prices are outrageous" and then I had to laugh, because I never dreamed I would shop in a thrift store, and now I'm complaining about prices?
