DIY Natutical Beverage Tray

lil lunaHi! I’m Chelsea! I blog over at Making Home Base about DIY, crafts, and life in a rental! Many of my projects are done SUPER cheap because I like decorating on a budget!

I am so excited to be here today sharing a new DIY with you! If there are two things I love it’s summer and nautical decor. If you visit my blog you’ll that I especially love nautical decor! So with summer around the corner I thought this would be the perfect time to whip up a fun beverage tray that is perfect for all the upcoming summer evenings spent outside!

I picked up a 15 inch wood round from the hardware store and sanded it until smooth.

Next, I spray painted the entire piece white. This required a few coats for full coverage.

Anchor Stenciled Beverage Tray_edited-1

I used my Silhouette to create a vinyl stencil for the anchors but you can easily use a purchased stencil or print and cut your desired design and use that as a stencil. Also, this project would be great for stamping as well!

After the stencil was firmly in place, I spray painted the anchors navy blue.

After the anchors were dry, I drilled holes for the handles. The handles are just drawer pulls that I spray painted gold. Super easy and cheap trick!
