Stenciled Tray and Side Table Storage

       On a recent trip to the hardware store
I ran across a large wooden circle and 
turned it into a beauty!

Table storage and chair with pillow

This large circle from Home Depot was $7 and gave me all kinds of great ideas! 

Wooden raw wood circle

It's a super large wooden circle and about an inch thick.

The first thing I did was to stain the piece with a dark kona stain then stencil on one of my favorite Antique stencils from Old Sign Stencils.

Above and below this stencil I added a couple of stenciled feathers.

See below for links to my Amazon affiliate craft supply suggestions for this project. 

Wooden tray with Antiques stenciled and handles

I added cabinet handles to either side then gave the piece a good sanding with an electric sander to distress the stencil. 

I coated the piece with a finishing coat of hemp oil to bring out the details and seal the distressed areas.

The giant wooden circle made a beautiful farmhouse tray for the center of my extra large table. 

Add Lazy Susan turntable parts like I did on this Farmhouse Lazy Susan and you've got yourself a spinning tray!

When not using this for a tray, it fits beautifully on top of this large wire basket and I can use it as a table with storage!

It makes the perfect end table or small coffee table and a great place to store throws or extra pillows.
