Absurdly Useful Numbered Tray

By:

DIY serving tray projects are simple ways to make your kitchen or family room a little more decorative. This Absurdly Useful Numbered Tray will especially make your home feel very welcoming. Trays are often underrated as kitchen supplies. However, once you paint your own serving tray, you'll wonder why you haven't used one before. This DIY decorative tray is great for bringing out snacks and beverages in style. It also looks cool just sitting on a coffee table with a few decorative jars.
