Custom Tray

Tags: , , , ,


After my unsuccessful chevron tray which now resides in the garage I still needed a tray for the kitchen. Remember how I won the Panduro Concrete Challenge? After I received the gift card I marched over there and shopped my little heart out. One of my purchases was this white tray. Yay! Rhymes. Couldn't resist.

The wooden pieces you get at Panduro and other craft stores have kind of a raw finish even though some of them, like this one, is pre-painted so I gave the tray a nice sanding and a few new coats of white spray paint. 

I wanted the pattern of the tray to be interchangeable so I cut a piece of (almost) clear plastic, which I had at home, to the interior size of the tray. Then I used the plastic as a template to cut a couple of pieces of wallpaper to the same size.

Pop one of the wallpaper scraps under the plastic and there's my yellow tray which matches my wine and my snacks.


Slide the green one under and I have me an outdoor breakfast tray. Not that I ever eat breakfast outdoors, I have it in front of the TV, rain or shine, but you get the picture.

And so what else did I get at Panduro? Loads of fun stuff, Some tools, yarn and knitting needles, fabric pens, a couple of more trays, pillow cases etc etc. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to craft much despite my four weeks off as I've been busy around the house but as soon as my major paint projects are done I'll get crafting. Watch this space!
