Chevron Madness!

So I decided to get in on this chevron madness that's going around!
I have been admiring everyone's wonderful work, but was a little nervous to get in on the action! But HEY its worth a try...right!?
Remember, I'm the girl who doesn't read instructions, never lets the paint dry all the way, and is impatient about everything. SO doing something that requires that much time and effort gave me a cold sweat!
But hey if they can do it, so can I!
(but I'll start off small!!)
 I started off with a black tray! I absolutely fell in LOVE with it when I saw it at Marshalls! The fact that it was only $6.00 made me love it even more!
But just like everything else in my changes pretty quick!

1.) I spray painted about 3 light coats of Krylon's dual in white and one heavier coat.
Sorry I didn't show a picture of the taping process...I was concentrating really hard!!
 2.) I lightly sanded in between coat.
 3.) I used nail polish remover to touch up the parts that bled through.
4.) I added a coat of clear glaze to the tray, but sanded off most of it everywhere except the center, to give it an antique feel.

I'm officially hooked! 
What else can I Chervon! :)
