Hello friends. I hope you’re having a great week so far. Today I’m sharing how to make a tray with tons of farmhouse style appeal. I love how it turned out and I can’t wait to make more in different styles.
This tray would be such a great addition to the kitchen or even a coffee bar area. So many ways you can use it in the house. If you follow my blog then you know I’m a little more coastal then farmhouse. But I feel like you can use a lot of farmhouse decor in a coastal home. It really works for both in my opinion, as long as I stay away from the chickens and pigs and replace with crabs and sandpipers!
How to Make a Tray Supplies:
Let’s get started!
I used Briarsmoke stain color for this project. I think it’s a BEAUTIFUL color and will fit in with any decor style, especially farmhouse! Let dry several hours. Once it dries you can go over with a paper towel and remove any remaining stain.
Quick Tip – Always wear gloves when doing a staining project. But if you forget or don’t have gloves on hand, and you get stain on your fingers. Use a little olive oil and it will help get the stain off faster.
Step 2. Once your stain has dried, it’s time to add the wooden knobs to the bottom. Add a dab of gorilla glue or even just use wood glue to the tops of the wooden knobs. Firmly place on bottom of plaque and let dry for about 2 hours.
Step 3. Now this step is optional, but I wanted to show you anther look you could do with this. I did three coats of the white chalk paint. Once it was dry I went over with light sandpaper and distressed the edges.
