A tray makes everything look better. Drinks, food, decorative objects, you name it. They make whatever is on the tray look instantly organized, intentional, and part of a plan. I’ve been wanting a tray for the top of the small chest we use as a bar cabinet but I was having trouble finding one that had the right dimensions and the look I wanted – simple and glossy with some gold accents. So I made one! Read on to see how to make a lacquered tray with brass accents.
The tutorial for how I made the tray is in my latest article for EHow but I wanted to share a couple of resources for the products I used.
- I used simple rounded brass pulls (found HERE).
- The brass corner straps can be found here.
- I used a basic white gloss spray paint but you can get an even glossier, truly lacquered finish with this furniture lacquer spray paint.
There are plenty of beautiful ready-made trays out there but making one allows you to customize the look and the size so you can get exactly what you want. It’s a great cost-effective way to get a high-end look too.
