I decided to make the tray out of cabinet door for my sister’s birthday.
And where would I go for the cabinet door but the Habitat Restore Store! I found an incredibly ugly one – not on purpose, but it was the right size and shape.
- Ugly? Am I right or am I right?
- I sanded it with my palm sander –
- (Quite the tool Diva aren’t I?)
- Then sprayed it with a primer coat of….
- wait for it…
- Heirloom White! (heavens own color)
Then I brush painted it, so that I could get the look I was going for. I used a Behr paint that is really close to Heirloom White (heavens own color). It is called Table Linen if anyone is interested.
Please forgive this photo – night, small dark room..I knew that I wanted to put something vinyl on the tray, and was planning on ordering something, but as usual time got away from me! I went into my never fail dollar store, Dollar Tree, and found this great vinyl with the word Welcome on it. Perfect! Guess how much it cost?
That joke just never grows old.
While I was at the Restore I picked up some cabinet hardware to use for tray handles. They were .25 cents each, and the cabinet door was a dollar.
My sweet hubby screwed in the handles, and then all that was left was putting on the vinyl.
Isn’t it too cute!
She can display it when she isn’t using it as a tray.
Here is is ready to serve coffee and treats to guests! What are those treats, you ask? Why, those are my failed attempt at Bakerella’s Cake Pops, I call them Cake Bombs…
So there you have a Diy serving tray – Not bad for $2.50 huh!
I really like it, and of course now want to make myself one!
