Mini makeover – coffee table tray, round deux

Around this time last year I did a teeny, tiny makeover on our coffee table tray. It was blah and wooden and whatnot so I painted it a light grey to cheer up our coffee table, but unfortunately it still looked shit hadn’t reached its full potential.

I attacked it a couple of weekends ago with my trusty can of ‘winegum’ paint from Montana and voila. Much better. Om, nom.

And here’s what it looked like before I painted it this time around – 

To pump up the volume, the below now NEEDS to happen to my tray. The moment I saw this picture {which the focus is meant to be on the jewelry, but my brains were immediately distracted by the spike candy} my heart actually stopped. Something along these lines has to happen in my living room. 

I showed photo to father this past weekend to pick his brains hoping he would know of some hardware piece that resembles these studs to some degree. BUT, the Practical Patty that I am is already thinking things like “it’s a high traffic area, and if someone’s clothes get caught on one of those spikes, a) someone/kitty might get hurt, b) contents of tray will morph into glamorous shrapnel and fly everywhere”. Well poo. Thanks, brain.

Has anyone out there in the blogosphere tried something similar to this? I’m thinking maybe gold thumb tacks  as a last resort, but it won’t have anywhere as near of an impact.
