Hi guys! You all asked me to keep you updated on any home projects I do, so today I’m sharing this super cute DIY Wood Tray Makeover. This is just in time to style it for Christmas and give you a sneak peek at my living room makeover in progress!!! The best part is today’s makeover didn’t cost a thing so I’m feeling generous! Be sure to stick with me *** GIVEAWAY ALERT ***… woohoo!
This DIY wood tray makeover is SO quick and easy… and stink’n cute, I hope it inspires you to take a second look at what YOU have around your home. Sometimes, all that old boring piece needs is a ridiculously simple tweak to make it fun again!
Here’s what I started with. A white painted HomeSense tray that I bought 10+ years ago. There was nothing wrong with it other than it was collecting dust in my basement because I was tired of looking at it.
I did a little sanding and added an old chair spindle to the mix and WOW… look at her now!

DIY WOOD TRAY MAKEOVER::
Do you remember the Indian Mirror I bought from HomeSense and used in my bathroom makeover? That mirror was my inspiration for this tray. And it’s funny. I’m usually all about painting to create a new look, but in the case of this wood tray makeover, it was taking OFF some of the paint that created this amazing look!
Step #1:: Clean
I gave it a good wipe down with a sponge and warm water.
Step #2:: Sand
I used this Dewalt sander which makes it effortless to sand. It took me all of 3 minutes [maybe not even] to sand the high spots off this tray. Here you can see the left side is sanded and the right is not. Look at the difference in all that detail!
Step #3:: Cut Spindles into Bunt Feet
I already had the little bunt feet prepared for this tray because I cut up this entire chair spindle when making these wood tray risers.
Step #4:: Paint Feet
I painted the feet in this clean white to match the existing white paint on the tray.
Step #5:: Glue Feet On
After I added 3 coats of white paint and let the feet dry, and then glued them onto the bottom corners of the tray with this wood glue. What do you think?
The feet really add a nice touch, don’t they!? And check out my new carpet and coffee table!!!!
I’m so excited to finally be redecorating my living room because it’s long overdue. I still need to prime, paint and add some finishing touches, but it’s well on its way! I’ll be sure to share any painted furniture projects I add to the room. I have a couple of pieces in mind already! 🙂
