diy serving tray

I recently saw this amazing tray from Up in the Air Somewhere on Etsy, and fell immediately in love.  So when Mr. Lovely came home with two wooden wine boxes and told me he wanted to do something fun with them, I knew just the thing.

Mr. Lovely did the manly stuff first, and took the trays to a buddy’s workshop to use his jigsaw.  He took them apart and cut the sides down, then finessed the ends into handles.  Like magic.  Somehow.  I dunno, you’d have to ask him.

Anyway!  Fast forward to Mr. Lovely handing the project off to moi.  I lined the bottom of each tray with plain white contact paper, and then ordered a roll of this awesome metallic gold tape to stripe it with.  I placed the stripes at random angles, only being sure to leave each strip of tape equidistant from the next.  Finally, I used an X-Acto knife to trim and clean the edges of the contact paper and tape.

Here you go!  Servin’ it up hot and fresh on my killer new trays.  xoxo
