Hey! It’s Kari from Life PreKARIous! I am so excited to show you this fun DIY Beverage Tray, today! This summer has gone by way to fast and I’m determined to make what’s left of it the best ever! Nothing quite says summer like an ice cold lemonade on the porch, right?
I used a round piece of wood called a “project panel” I found at Home Depot. First, I painted the whole thing with a spray primer. Then, I drew my design on with pencil.
I had some left over bright yellow latex paint from painting my front door, so I used that as well as some white acrylic paint. To get the textured look, I painted in layers and embraced the visible brush strokes that usually make me cringe!
After I finished painting, I topped it off with two coats of high gloss polyurethane.
After the polyurethane dried I added the cabinet door handles.
The screws were a little bit too long so I had my husband grind them down a little.
I think the lemon is perfect for summer, but you could do almost anything! A jack-o-lantern one for Halloween and a peppermint one Christmas would be SO fun!
