Have had this tray for ages as it fits perfectly on the backrest of the couch where it's pretty much out of view. But I could see it and the view was becoming less appealing over the years.
Had just about reconciled myself to tossing it when I decided to paint the inside instead. Dipped into my stash of test pots and two coats of Catherine Martin's Salt Marsh for Porter's Paints later, it's happily back on the couch where it belongs.
To do something similar, have a damp cloth handy to wipe paint off rim and inside handles.
