Dollar Tree Pizza Pan Tray

Updated 7.2.2020

Dollar Tree Pizza Pan

I updated this post because the old one really wasn't my style anymore, but it's still a great project!

This was the old project....  I basically did the same thing.  I first spray painted the whole pan. Then did a stencil on it.

Old Pizza Pan Tray

I wanted to turn the new Dollar Tree Pizza Pan into a serving tray.  So, I picked up some handles at our local mission, it's like a thrift store.

Of course, I used my favorite primer and spray paint!  Rust-Oleum 2X Ultra Cover Primer and Paint.

The old handles also got a coat of primer and paint in black.

For this Dollar Tree Pizza Pan, I thought a stripe of black would be a nice simple touch.  I measured a 3"strip and taped it off with painter's tape.

Then I spray painted that area with black paint.  Be sure to remove the tape right after you paint it.  Take it off when the paint's wet. 

After it dried, I did a quick coat of Rust-Oleum Clear Coat.

The last thing to do was to attach the handles.  I drilled 2 holes for each handle.

That's it!  Such a quick and easy project! The possibilities are endless, there are so many ways you could paint this simple pizza tray.

I decided to set it by my coffee pot.

  12. Really cute idea. If I would want to use these trays for food, what do you spray them with to protect the food and the tray?

  21. Hi Lori,

    Great transformation! I love the stencil (I think I might even own it!) and colours that you used. Is your tray magnetic? It would make a great magnet board if it is :)

  24. Hi! I see that these comments are from 2012 but I just saw this project on Pinterest. Did you seal after painting with anything? I'm thinking of doing a sign for the front door and wondered if it would need sealed. Thanks!

    1. Wow! This is from a long time ago! At the time, I did not seal it. But if you are going to put it on your front door, and it will be exposed to the elements, I definitely would give it a good seal with some exterior clear coat.
