My name is Lindsay & I run a blog called Southern Lovely.
Today I am going to share how to make a beadboard decorative tray, that can be used for any holiday, or really any type of centerpiece. Inspiration was taken from here.
Strip of molding/trim
Before I went to Lowes to purchase my supplies, I figured out my measurements, which allowed me to have my bead board cut directly in the store. FYI–my measurements were 10×24 inches.
Here’s What I did:
This is where my handy husband came in–using a Miter saw, he cut the molding to fit on the already cut bead board.
Then apply liquid nails to secure it all together.
I used this technique to glaze it.
Basically you dip a sponge brush in the glaze, paint where you’d like it to go, then wipe the excess off with a damp cloth. It’s pretty much fool proof. 🙂
Once it was all dry, I sprayed it with a protective coat.
Since this is a Thanksgiving centerpiece, here is what I added.
I am really excited to have this little tray to work with from now on. It will be fun to switch out the centerpieces each season.
So, what do you think–did I do okay posting on Jen’s awesome blog?? I was a bit nervous, lots of pressure. 🙂
