I found myself in our local Dollar Tree which is now a Dollar Tree Plus. Because my Dollar Tree is now a Dollar Tree Plus it has items that range from $1.25 to $5.00. I found some amazing wooden trays for $5.00 that I just know we can get creative with. These trays can be used for a variety of things but I want to change them up and turn one into a fun and unique container.
The supplies I will be using are:
1. One wooden tray from the Dollar Tray ( 15”x11”)
2. Staple gun
3. Hot glue
5. Paint brush
6. Maple colored gel stain by DecoArt
7. One dish towel ( the dish towel that I’m using is from our website)
The wooden tray was $5.00 from my Dollar Tree Plus.
I pulled one of the handle ends off of the tray. This is very easy to do and did not require any tools.
Once I removed the handle piece I then added some hot glue to the groove on each side of the tray. This will help secure the side pieces in place.
The next step is to paint the tray. You can paint the tray any color that you want. I will be using a walnut colored gel stain by DecoArt on my tray.
You will want to completely cover the whole tray.
Once The tray is painted it is then time to add the dish towel.
