Vintage Cabinet Door Serving Tray

A couple vintage oak cabinet doors were dropped off at my house and  I had a couple of great ideas for them.

I began by filling the holes from the old hardware and stripping off the veneer in the center panel that had bubbled.

I drilled holes on each side and added old wooden handles I had in my shop.

The tray got a couple of coats of Fusion Mineral Paint in Lamp White. It's a beautiful white with a greyish-blue undertone.

When the paint dried I gave the edges a heavy distressing with sandpaper to give the tray an old worn look.

I'm using a Milk and Cream stencil from Knick of Time.   Angie's Vintage Sign Stencils are beautiful and the large selection of farmhouse stencils are perfect for my projects.

Using a stencil brush I applied a very light coat of paint to the stencil. I went over the lettering several times with light coats being careful not to use too much paint that might leak under the stencil.

This stencil was the perfect for a serving tray. I'm picturing a cup of coffee and a pitcher of milk or cream delivered to the back porch.

On the back I added feet to keep the tray steady on rough surfaces.
