A New Look For Some Old Trays

It's always fun to find some unique vintage trays and give them new life as one-of-a-kind accessories.  These started out as tarnished and scratched silver and metal trays. 
First I clean them with Simple Green and then give them a spray coat of flat black paint.  A coat or two of red chalk paint around the edges.  Two coats of black acrylic in the centers.  Finally I paint the lettering and trim with white acrylic.  I varnished these pieces but they also look lovely waxed. 
This little piece is the bottom of a butter dish!
