Hosting a party can be crazy, but it’s also fun. Especially if you have pretty plates and trays to serve your food on. Seriously, a pretty party set up can really make all the difference. Last week, on the Better Homes and Gardens blog, I shared this easy tutorial so you can make your own Color Block Serving Tray DIY. Total cost was under $15 and it took me less than two hours to make. It would go even faster if I didn’t have to wait for paint to dry.
Supplies needed for this project (full tutorial can be found here):
- 24 inch x 12 inch x 1 inch Poplar wood piece (if you use a different type of wood, make sure to avoid porous woods)
- 2 cabinet drawer pulls with screws (I used the champagne bronze 3 inch Brainerd pulls from Lowes)
- Paint (I used this small sample bottle of Valspar Belle Grove Sorbet)
- Paint brush
- Painters tape
- Cabinet bumpers
- Optional: Food safe block oil (I recommend this if you will be placing food on the tray)
If you create this project (or any of the projects on my blog), feel free to share a link to the photo in the comments below. OR, tag me in a photo on Instagram @thepapermama with the #papermamafriends hashtag. To check out the full tutorial, head on over to the Better Homes and Gardens blog.
