For the past month or so I’ve been working on a little office project that I can’t wait to share with you. I’ve never had my own work space before and it has been so fun to create a room that is all my own. Of course, since it is not quite finished yet, you’ll just have to wait a little longer!

In any case, it was perfect excuse to finally take on a project that I have been wanting to do for years. In fact, I don’t know exactly how long I had been holding on to this old cookie sheet, but suffice to say it has been at least 18 months, and maybe even longer.

It was such a fun & easy project that I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner!

Assemble your materials: Old cookie sheet, fabric, spray adhesive, Mod Podge, paint brush, and scissors/pinking shears.

Here is what you need:

old cookie sheet
fabric (mine can be found here)
spray adhesive
Mod Podge
paint brush
scissors and/or pinking shears

Cut a piece of fabric to wrap around cookie sheet.

Step 1: Cut a piece of fabric big enough to wrap around entire cookie sheet.

Spray the adhesive on the top and inner sides of the cookie sheet.

Step 2:  Spray the spray adhesive on top and inner sides of cookie sheet. Carefully place center of fabric over center of cookie sheet and smooth into place, making sure that there are no wrinkles and that the fabric sticks well to the sides and bottom of the pan.

Carefully place the center of fabric over the center of cookie sheet.

Step 3:  Spray adhesive on the top edge and outer sides of the pan, then wrap fabric around and smooth into place.

Make sure there are no wrinkles and that the fabric sticks well to the cookie sheet.

Step 4: Trim excess fabric on bottom, then spray adhesive on bottom of pan and smooth fabric in place.

Use a paint brush to coat the top and inner sides of the tray with Mod Podge.

Step 5: Use brush to cover top and inner sides of tray with Mod Podge. Let dry completely.

Brush the fabric on the back of the tray with Mod Podge.

Step6: Cut a small piece of fabric to cover the back of tray, then use spray adhesive to secure in place over raw edges of fabric. Brush with Mod Podge. Let dry completely.

Assemble your personal items on the finished fabric covered tray.

I absolutely love the way it looks in my little space, but I think it would also make such a GREAT gift idea! I guess it is time to start collecting a few more old cookie sheets! 🙂

Am I the only one that hangs onto junk with the intention of repurposing it someday?
