My neighbors were purging recently and put a large metal bird bath out on the curb for trash. I ran across the street so fast to grab the top piece because I instantly knew it would make an amazing tray for a centerpiece! After giving it a thorough cleaning, I used my go-to spray paint Rustoleum Ultra Cover in flat black and gave it a few thin coats.

Besides the hole in the middle, I don't think anyone would ever guess it had its origins as a bird bath! I may even end up using it as a large serving tray and place a cloth napkin down on the bottom first!
