DIY Coffee Table Tray!

I’ve been really trying to get back into the swing of crafting to prep me for the big projects the house needs once the summer ends. So after a trip through my favorite craft store, I decided to start small and, even though it took some experimenting with Mod Podge, make a coffee table tray (since we finally got a proper coffee table)!  It was perhaps the easiest craft so far!  Check out how to make your own Mod Podge coffee table tray below!

SUPPLIES”DIY coffee table try

-Wood tray (or anything similar that you are trying this with)

-Mod Podge

-Acrylic Paint

-Paint brush

-Sponge brush

-Designed paper (like scrapbooking paper or thin wallpaper)

HOW TO:

  1. PAINT!  I painted everything but the bottom (because I was planning on putting paper there.  I always miss spots so I did a second coat along the edgesIMG_3326
  2. LET DRY! Patience (or lack of) always gets the best of me here but try to let it dry.  I used acrylic paint and it only took like 15 minutes to dry.
  3.  MOD PODGE!  I used two different papers (three sheets in total).  Make sure to do them how they will lay and do separately.  I also used a sponge brush.IMG_3329
  4. SECOND COAT!  If necessary.  It is though, trust me.
