Turn a wine crate into a serving tray
I had some really nice wooden wine boxes that a local winery gave to me a while back so I decided to transform one of them into a serving tray. I have been working in the backyard and decided we were in need of a serving tray for when we set out food and drinks.
I simply gave it a coat of paint (the same paint I used in our laundry room years ago) and stenciled on a design for a little interest using a sharpie. Since it would be housing beverages I sealed it with wax so liquids would not cause any damage to the wood.
I had purchased these gorgeous knobs awhile back from Cost Plus and decided they would make perfect handles.
Total cost $4 for the knobs
Super simple, fun and makes for the perfect tray.

The tray is so pretty….looks like something from anthropologie.
How clever! The knobs are great and the tray is a perfect colour for summer fun!
Yes, very much like something from Anthropologie… Except would have been $50! Clever stenciling with a sharpie!
I tried painting and it wasn’t working so great and the sharpie worked like a charm 🙂
