Painting a Serving Tray?I bought a restaurant size baking sheet from the thrift store in hopes of turning it into a large serving tray. The plan was to decoupage pictures of family and friends onto it, or just spray paint it and lacquer it. My question is, would it be safe to eat food that was left on the lacquer/paint? Anyone know of a safe product to use and/or alternative ways of making this idea work? Thanks.
