Summer is all about living outdoors - enjoying the fresh air, flowers & sunshine! We eat just about every meal outside this time of year ... and the kids love it! Serving trays are essential to making this easy - whether you're entertaining or enjoying a quiet backyard moment alone.
Consider creating a one-of-a-kind serving tray with a little paint! Restore an old tray or pick up a nice unfinished wood one and give it life, like this one I did a number of years ago:
For this look, I primed, then painted 2 coats of white gloss. Simple painter's masking tape will allow you to whip out some neutral stripes. Add your unique touch with some alphabet stencils - "Faith, Hope & Love." Then, you MUST finish with a sealer, so you won't damage your art with condensation & drink spills.
(PS: the "Living Water" etched glasses & carafe in the top photo are something I designed for DaySpring and can be seen here if you're interested in a better look.) :-)
