Materials

  • One larger frame
  • Clear silicon glue
  • Base paint
  • Accent paint
  • Two drawer pulls
  • Power drill
  • Glue
  • A selection of photos and memorabilia

 

 

Step #1: Start by removing all glass and backing from the frame.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step #2: Measure where you’ll place your drawer pulls. The drawer pulls will act as handles to carry your tray.

 

 

 

 

 

Step #3: Drill holes for the drawer pulls and set the drawer pulls aside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step #4: Choose a base colour for your tray and coat the entire frame.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step #5: Paint the backing an accent colour. Now you are ready for the fun part: planning and arranging your photos.

 

 

 

 

 

Step #6: Apply glue to the back of your photos and adhere to the freshly painted backing.

 

 

 

 

 

Step #7: Once all your photos are attached apply silicon to inside of the frame. Place the backing into the frame so the pictures face up.

 

 

 

 

 

Step #8: Run more silicon around the edge of the frame and place your accents on the tray. Press the glass gently on top and allow to dry.

 

 

 

 

 

And voila! You have a serving tray personalized for you and your cottage that guests will love.
