Hey everyone and happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week! I know I’m looking forward to the weekend — mainly to tackle some things on my to-do list and sneak in a little R&R at the pool!
One of my recent Quick projects started with your standard wooden tray that elementary school teachers would often use to collect homework or use to organize paper…remember this?
- Sand it down a bit
- Wipe it down with a dry cloth
- 2 coats of exterior white paint *
- Pick a fabric, any fabric
- Measure each side of your tray
- Mark the fabric on the back with your needed measurements
- Cut fabric according to your measurements
- Spray your spray adhesive (can be purchased at Michaels) one side at a time**
- Attach your fabric
- Cut untidy ends after each side
*Any paint of your choice can be used here but I wanted to use it outdoors and wanted it to compliment my front porch furniture and all around decor
**Do NOT do this inside as the spray will spray in multiple directions the first time you use it.
I used leftover fabric from my curtains and pillows used in my living room below…you can really always find something to do with scraps of fabric!
You might remember a similar project I did – Bamboo & Leather! Hopefully I’ll score some good finds at the flea market tomorrow — not that there’s much I really need right now but there’s always something you could use and/or reinvent!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend! Cheers, Karla xoxox
