I made/refurbished this serving tray a few weeks ago, actually I made two. I am thinking that I might give them away for Christmas presents. I could fill the tray with napkins, plates and all sorts of things.
I found a crate at a local antique store and painted it my new favorite color gray, with a little white over it to distress it a bit. I sewed a white piece of fabric to fit on the bottom.
I also sewed a small piece of fabric to go over the top of that. There is no real reason for it, I just liked the way it looks.
This is how the crate looked before I painted it. All the brown spots are actually bleach spots. I cleaned the box with bleach, then cleaned it with bleach and cleaned it again! I bought the crate for $2.00 and had all the fabric leftover from other projects. I like the way it went from trash to treasure. Now, I just need to find a few more.
Thanks for visiting!
