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.

  2. I've been wanting to stain some photoboard backdrops for awhile but didn't want to invest in stain. We have plenty of brown paint laying around the house though. I'll have to give your watered down method a try. Thanks so much for linking up at Talented Tuesdays!
