Today has been such a busy day.
I have been on the hunt for supplies to make a serving tray, and found some unique inspiration at IKEA.
It is one of my favorite go-to places to find supplies.
Here’s how my tray turned out:
Then I headed over to the kitchen section to look for some handles. These 6 inch black kitchen cabinet handles will work just fine and for $4.99 for 2, not bad. You’ll need 2 packages.
Black and white acrylic paint, paintbrush, container for paint, clear glaze and sandpaper.
I placed the handles on the tray momentarily to mark where they will go. Don’t screw them in place until you have finished painting your design.
I sketched my design in pencil. If you don’t feel comfortable doing it free hand you can always use a stencil. Now don’t worry to much about making mistakes. It’s only paint and if you make a mistake just paint over it.
Here’s what I came up with.
I purchased some wooden balls (Hobby Lobby) and painted them black.
Again using the gorilla glue, I attached them to the four corners. I really like the raised look.
This will seal the surface.
Well, there you have it.
