If you missed my post about trays for organization in every room, you can check it out here.
I have been recently sprucing up Erin’s bedroom, noticing that his room is one of the only rooms not having a tray. His room is blue with orange accents. When shopping, I keep stumbling upon the leather croc trays but at exorbitant prices.
I was determined to make my own.
I ordered the orange croc paper from here. This paper comes in several other colors and is very thick and durable. I was very pleased.
I then found a wood tray to work with here.
Using Mod Podge, some scissors, a pencil and a ruler, I went to working.
I measured out each of the sides and then penciled the sizes onto the paper. I carefully cut them. Then I painted Mod Podge onto the wood and attached each piece. I painted a layer of Mod Podge on top of each to protect the tray. Mod Podge is very forgiving, leaving a clear, glossy finish when dried. It also comes in different finishes, like matte, antique and even GLITTER!
I loved how this turned out!! Plus, the cost of this was around $25!!!!!!
