Five Minute Farmhouse Footed Tray

4 Materials
5 Minutes

This project takes a few simple supplies. I started with an old pan found at a garage sale, wooden knobs leftover from another project , E600 glue and some wood stain.

I hammered a few dents out of the pan, but left the rusty goodness alone. Take four wooden knobs, which are perfect due to the flat side they have, and stain your favorite color. Attach the knobs to tray bottom with E600 glue and allow to dry completely.

You can see how adding this tray wrangles all the spices we use regularly and declutters our kitchen counter in a farmhouse fresh way! If you like this five minute farmhouse project you'll LOVE...

    The glue: I've seen it and wonder how it is with concrete, outside? Reason is I have a fabulous concrete lamp post that came with the house and I'm sure was put here by the builder; 1950's era. I don't know if its maybe settling but a huge bush was placed beside it. The bush is gone and I wonder if that is the reason. There are two hairline cracks that I don't want to get any larger. Wonder if this glue would settle into those cracks and seal them. I feel that making them water tight should stave off more damage. Do you think I could inject this into the cracks? I have a super dental tool that is usually used for flushing out dry sockets etc.

    How did you get the white line on the wooden feet? I have everything to create but can't figure out how you were to make the line.
