DIY Rustic Wood Tray

I love coffee. It’s no secret, & if we are going to be best friends you need to know that. If we are at my house I will make coffee in my french press or brew a single cup with my keurig. I’m also obsessed with tea. Every kind. With honey. Since coffee & tea are a part of my everyday life, I wanted to create a small special coffee station in our kitchen. I first wanted to create a DIY rustic wood tray to keep everything neat on the counter. It had to be quite large to hold the coffee maker & coffee supplies so I recruited my amazing hubby & we got to work on our DIY Tray…

For this tray we purchased 8 foot 3×1’s. You can select the boards you want to use or you can use pallet wood. Anything will do! Since we wanted a large tray { We made ours 28″x16″} we lined 6 boards up for the bottom of the tray. We cut the 6 boards for the bottom of the tray down to the size we wanted. We then cut two boards to the same size for the two long sides of the tray & cut two more boards for the shorter sides of the tray to the size we wanted.

After we had all our boards cut and lined up, we screwed all of the sides together as shown above. We then started screwing the bottom boards down onto the side boards. We used 1 1/4 inch screws so that they would not be exposed or pop through.

After all the bottom boards were screwed on we flipped the tray over & gave it a few coats of white paint. After that we waxed it with a mix of dark and clear wax for a worn look & added drawer pulls to both sides for handles. Simple DIY rustic wood tray complete.

    This looks great! I will be definitely be making one of my own. Can you elaborate on what you used to wax the tray and how you went about that process? Was the wax to seal in the paint?

    He or she proceeds to point out he has never noticed one thing about insurance companies seeking the bar on generating while using a cell phone.However, those poised to buy policosinol and lower their cholesterol should approach with caution; and this is the message voiced by those who are less than enthusiastic about the policosinol劉s emergence as something of a wonder cure. Once you step onto the island of Sark, you are stepping back in time. How to get there – If you want to actually step on Cape Horn then you’ll have to contact the Chilean naval authorities, as there is a 13 kilometre rule for boats approaching it (our boat managed to get within a few kilometres of Cape Horn luckily as the sea was calmer than normal). The batting team sends up one player at a time to bat.
