Striped Farmhouse Tray

Some of my favorite projects come out of my basement. My basement full of the most random things that I think I’ll for sure need one day. Which I most likely will. Or maybe not. You just never know, so might as well just hold on to them for the right timing!  I do the same thing with wood. Scrap wood, barn wood, archetectual pieces, so on and so on. There was this round wood piece that I picked up from our local hardware store once that I know I could turn into a project, and I finally did with this DIY Striped Farmhouse Tray!

Today I’m joining a crazy talented group of ladies to bring you some pretty awesome DIY projects that you can do yourself this summer! If you are coming from House by Hoff, welcome to my little creative spot! I’m thrilled you’re here, and I hope you take a look around! In the meantime, let me share how I made this cute little tray so you can make one too!

DIRECTIONS:

  • I started by staining the piece of raw round wood.

  • Once the wood was completely dry, I taped off the stripes with painters tape, then painted the wood that was still visible.

  • After the paint was dry, I peeled off the tape to expose the painted stripes on the wood, then sanded the whole piece down to give it a more weathered look.

  • Next I sealed the paint with a wax, and then attached the black handles to each side of the wood.

    Where did you get the round wood? I’ve checked Lowes and Home Depot and neither have a smaller piece of round wood.

    I know that depending on the wood, that color won’t always be the same but what color of stain did you use? I am wanting to go lighter on my bedroom furniture.
