DIY Map TV Tray

I had so much fun completing this project. I’d been thinking for a while about different crafts I could do with road maps. I finally decided to mod podge the map on a TV tray I owned for a few years.

I started off by cleaning the dust and dirt from the tray. Then I spray painted the tray with Krylon Paint + Primer (gloss, white).

I had some errands to complete, so I let the tray dry for rest of the night. Then on the next day, I cut out the map to fit on top of the tray.

Next, I glued the map to the tray with Mod Podge (gloss). I spread the Mod Podge on top of the tray and on the back of the map. Then I pressed them firmly together, making sure I removed any lumps or bubbles.

Finally, I let the tray dry for a couple of hours, then I gave it one last coat of Mod Podge to seal the map and paint.

I’m so happy with how this project came together. I think the map matches well with the white paint.
