Repurposed Industrial Metal Serving Tray

Here is how I created an outdoor industrial drink tray from a garage sale find.

I'm on a mission lately to use all the cool things I've been collecting in my basement. 

Today I'm turning this old metal drip pan I bought at a garage sale into an industrial serving tray we can use on the patio this summer.

I cleaned up the tray with scouring powder in the basement slop sink then drilled 2 holes in each end of the metal tray and inserted thick rope for handles.

I used this fabulous Route 66 stencil from Old Sign Stencils by Funky Junk Interiors to give the tray a quick stenciled design on the bottom of the tray then lightly sanded the image

This gorgeous industrial tray is perfect for the picnic table this summer and was an easy repurposed project that took less than 30 minutes.

I love that I can leave this tray outside on the table and don't have to worry about it getting ruined.

  1. Well, if it's ever a good time to visit you, it would be now. Iced tea PLUS a metal tray... just don't be surprised if that sweet thang goes missing!

    It's gorgeous, Susan! I like your idea of metal. If you had any idea how much I leave outdoors in error...

    Thank you for the mentions!
