Materials: Wooden Cutlery Tray, Paint, Glass Knobs, Cup Hooks
Description: Sand the tray thoroughly and paint all sides and crevices carefully with a brush (I used Valspar’s Tempered Gray for my main colour).
Let the coat dry, and then paint another coat.
I chose to add some hand painted details inside the boxes of the tray with white paint (Valspar’s Ultra White) and one of my daughter’s little craft brushes, but you could also skip this step or try painting with a stencil (or painting the back panels a different solid colour). The options are endless!
Add a coat of clear varnish.
Next, attach the knobs to the tops of each compartment. I used super glue instead of a drill – it was a lot easier and it seems to be holding well!
Screw the little cup hooks along the bottom of the tray (I used 5).
