Farmhouse Style Round Wooden Tray DIY Tutorial:
- To begin, you need to basecoat your wooden tray with the Voodoo Gel Stain by rubbing it into the surface with a rag. Let that layer dry before moving on.
- Next, use your painter’s tape to create a 3 inch stripe horizontally across your wooden round. Then, use the tape to create the narrower striped areas above and below your 3 inch stripe.
- Once your stripes are taped off, use Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in the color Fluff to fill in the stripes. I recommend using a makeup sponge to pounce the paint onto the areas where the tape meets the wood, then use your paint brush to smooth everything out. Be sure to remove the tape before the paint dries.
- When the stripes are dry, you can add a stencil or transfer if you’d like. For the tray I created below, I used a Chalk Couture Transfer and Dixie Belle Paint in the colors Fluff and Caviar.
- Finally, if your piece is going to be used as a tray or outdoors, I would recommend adding a coat of Gator Hide to seal in the finish. Once that is dry, you can add handles to your tray if, you’d like.
