How to Make a Wooden Wine Barrel Footed Tray

       Sometimes a thrift store find just needs a tiny tweak to make it perfect!

This tray was beautiful when I found it, great wrought iron handles and a beautiful wine barrel image.

But I had an idea to make it even better!

At one time I found a whole bag of wooden candle holders. 

I knew when I found them they would make great bun feet someday.

Today was that day, I added 4 to the bottom of this tray using wood glue and screws. 

You can see the very light finish this tray had when I found it in this photo. 

My next step was to paint the entire bottom of the tray black.

When the bottom was dry I used my new favorite antiquing stain over the top of the tray. 

I recently found a product made by Fusion Mineral Paint called Antiquing Tough Coat. It is a stain and matte sealer in one and is a gorgeous color! Check with your nearest Fusion Mineral Paint dealer for more information.

  1. What a clever idea Susan. Using those candle holders as legs for the tray. I think it is so pretty and rustic looking.

  3. I'm patiently waiting for a Fusion stockist in Tucson! That product sounds intriguing. Were the wooden candle holders cut down or did they originate that size? Thanks!
