We are adding the craft to your Craft Projects.
The project was added to your Craft Projects.
From the blogger: "Wood pedestal tray, footed tray, table style tray, whatever you call them, these pretty farmhouse style risers are useful in so many ways and are fabulous for making your décor stand out. Style them up as table centerpieces for parties or weddings. Use them as dessert or drink stands. Turn one into a coffee station for your kitchen, or even a cool desk accessory for your office. Wood pedestal trays are really inexpensive if you ‘do it yourself’. Please visit my blog for the materials list, full step-by-step picture tutorial, and to see how this pedestal tray was styled for Christmas."

Primary TechniqueWood Crafts
Take a piece of wood for your base and cut some trim the same length.
Sand all the pieces and wipe down with a damp cloth.
Give all the wood pieces two coats of wood stain, I used a walnut coloured stain for this (see the materials list on my blog for the details).
Once the wood stain is dry (about one hour), paint the pieces with whichever colour paint you want your pedestal tray to be.
Once the paint is dry, use a sander to distress it then wax and buff your wood.
Assemble the pieces. Use some wood glue to glue all the pieces of your trim to the pedestal tray base.
Attach the legs. I used curtain pole finials for the legs. The finials were hollow inside and I was worried that there would not be enough surface wood on them to glue them to the base of the pedestal tray.
Attach small round furniture pads to the bottom of the feet to prevent them from scratching your table.
Your tray is finished!
