I’ve been looking through my thrifty stash again trying to clear out more things, and I came up with this two-tier faux galvanized tray. Made out of a metal bucket, baking pan, candlestick, and wooden ball knobs. Wanting it to all look like galvanized I decided to try a faux galvanized metal technique again. Like on one of my Dollar store container makeover and my Faux galvanized metal letters. I wasn’t sure how it would all turn out but I’m happy to say it all went well!

Two-tier Faux Galvanized Tray Supplies
Wood unfinished candlestick
3 Wooden ball knobs
Grey chalk paint
Rainy day grey acrylic
Black acrylic paint
Silver metallic acylic paint
Two wood screws
Gorilla super glue gel
Two-Tier Faux Galvanized Tray
To make my two-tier tray I started out painting everything with Waverly grey chalk paint. I used chalk paint because it adheres to metal without having to sand the items.
I only added one coat since I would be layering it with different colors of paint.
Next, I used black acrylic paint and a sponge to dab the black on over the grey leaving black spots here and there.
Then I went back over the tiered tray using rainy day grey to tone down the black and add a variety of grey’s.
Once all this is dry I went back over everything with metallic using the sponge again and a paintbrush where the sponge couldn’t reach.
I continue sponging the metallic on the two-tier faux galvanized tray until I got the desired effect I was looking for.
Putting The Two-tiered Tray Together
Next, I drilled a hole in the center of the pan and bucket to help secure them to the candlestick.
Then I used Gorilla super glue gel to connect the ball knobs to the bottom of the pan letting set for a few hours to dry.
To put it all together I added some glue to the Candlestick and put it in place then screwed the pan and bucket down.
That was a pretty easy project I was able to use up a few more items from my stash and now have a two-tier faux galvanized tray. I’m thrilled how it turned out! Hmm now where to use it, craft room, bathroom…..
Here’s my two-tiered tray beside a galvanized tub.
How do you like my two-tiered galvanized tray, and do you think it resembles galvanized metal?
