Simple Serving Tray

Happy Sunday!

How are you? After a busy week I am enjoying a relaxing day at home!

Today I wanted to share a simple project I completed a few week ago.


A while back I picked up one of {these} round ponderosa panels


and some pretty handles.

A little trick I use for “staining” wood is watering down my favorite brown paint. I apply the watered down mixture just as I would stain by brushing it on, letting is sit for a moment, and then using a rag to wipe and spread the paint mixture.  It works great without the odor of stain!






I use my tray in a variety of ways! I often have it sitting on my dining room table with a plant, candle or some other cute centerpiece.


Thank you for stopping by!
