I took a large old wicker basket that had seen better days and gave it a good washing with soap and water, let it drip dry, and sprayed it with Rust-Oleum Chalked spray paint in Serenity Blue.
DIY Wicker Storage Basket Tray Table
Easy coffee table or side table with storage and removable tray tabletop.
Once the spray paint was dry I painted the basket with Rust-Oleum Chalked paint in Linen white. After I had painted it on I lightly wiped it off with a rag.
While the basket was drying I stained a 24" round wood tabletop with Varthane interior wood stain in "Sunbleached". Once the stain was dry I used two coats of Polycrylic Clear Satin to seal it.
I drilled out holes for the handles that would form the tabletop tray and attached them using a cordless drill.
Here is the finished coffee table. It would also make a great end table, side table, or nightstand. There is plenty of room for storage in the basket and the tray is removable so you can you can use it as a conventional tray as well as a tabletop.
