DIY SERVING TRAY MAKEOVER
Hey friends, it’s Thrift Store Decor day! One of my favorite days of the month. Today, I’m sharing this sad two legged wood display, it was easy to transform it in to a DIY Serving Tray. Be sure to visit all the other awesome and thrifty ideas at the end of the post!
The round tray was missing a leg and had a water ring on the top.
Spray paint is always a great idea! Or at least that’s what I think! I used Rust-oleum and the color is Satin Heirloom White. It’s one of my favorite colors to use. It’s light and bright and not as stark as white.
This is a large piece, perfect for serving just about anything. It’s great for placing on my ottoman. There have been a lot of tipsy drinks teetered on the ottoman, this makes me so happy to have a large flat surface for drinks.
You can use a thrift store tray or piece of wood. I have included affiliate links to items used. Apply two light coats of spray paint, letting the paint dry according to the directions on the spray paint can. Decorate tray with paint and stencil designs of your choice.

These pulls are from my stash! They are large and in charge on this serving tray. They felt like they were free, hehehehe, there’s no telling how long I’ve had them. They were originally purchased at Hobby Lobby at 50% off, of course.
They were perfect, I measured the distance between the holes so I could use my Ryobi drill and a 1/4″ bit to drill the holes and guess what, they lined up perfectly. Honestly, I’m not the best at measuring, let’s celebrate this little victory!
For the stencil/transfer (link is in the directions), I chose the word Home. I applied the transfer and placed the chalk paste over the silk screen area and cleaned the transfer in cold water in my sink. Now it’s clean and ready for the next use.
Murphy loves the new tray. She just needs another cup of coffee.

Thank you Christy, that ottoman really needed this!
First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a
quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
I have had a difficult time clearing my
thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing but
it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying
to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
That is such a cute stencil! Love all their stencils actually, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one I DIDN’T want!
Thanks Pam!! I feel the same way 🙂
