Building a wooden serving tray for breakfast with a recycled drawer. Today starts the shifts to bring the coffee to bed, with a tray artisanal and cookies oatmeal or honey. Today I am going to share with you this work of recycling, very easy to do, and that will give us many satisfactions (I hope). With a drawer of vegetables, we make a tray for breakfast today. As you see, this wooden tray is ideal for serving breakfast in bed, a snack on the terrace or a frugal pane on the sofa in front of the TV. The idea of this recycling was to get a vintage style tray to use in the kitchen, serve the table or take breakfast and pamper the family.
This wooden serving tray idea is very simple to make. All we need is the right tools and take the time to disassemble and re-assemble the recycled drawer. To do it you only have to look for a piece of wood (in this case, it has been chosen from pine) and some wardrobe handles. A simple work of diy that you can do in a short time with this step by step. Measure and mark with the pencil the holes to place the handles. When you take action, you have to keep in mind that the handles should be centered. Once you have all four holes, screw the handles into the tray and tighten them tightly to resist the weight.
Measures and marks 4 legs (with a length of three fingers) of wood of the same length. Try to be as accurate as possible to keep the tray level. Use a saw to cut the four pieces. Turn the diy wooden serving tray over and attach all four legs to the four corners of the tray. Let them dry and sand a little on top to soften the surface of the legs. Even if the sanded feet are thin, if you are going to use the tray on easily scratched surfaces or on delicate fabrics, such as bedspreads or sheets, it is best to wear them with felt circles.
You already have your simple wooden serving tray ready! You can leave it in natural wood or paint it the color you like. For this, you have to pass the sandpaper all over the surface to smooth it well, remove the remains with a dry cloth and paint with a roller the entire surface. Once well painted, let it dry and apply a second coat for a perfect finish. I hope you liked it and you can make your own tray for breakfast using a recycled.
