Refurbished Serving Tray


One of the things I love about being a DIYer is that people give me free stuff that I turn into projects. My next door neighbor sees me out in working in the garage all the time, so recently she gave me a serving tray that needed refurbishment.

For this project, I tried to use materials I had on hand, so I could spend as little money as possible. I decided to use tile to decorate the bottom of the tray and give the tray a fresh coat of paint. I did have to buy a few things including ¼x2 inch hobby board for trim and a small container of grout. The total cost for these items was $8.

I made a new tray bottom out of wood. It is not pretty, but I used whatever I could find in my scrap pile.

My wife was very excited about this project because she thinks I should use the tray to bring her afternoon coffee or breakfast in bed.
