Thrifted bed tray

Happy Veterans' Day!

Last week when I shared some of the pieces in our living room that were DIY'd I forgot to tell you about the bed tray. I found this at the thrift store for $2.00!  

I was excited when I found this bed tray because it reminded of this one that I had seen from West Elm for $59.

I removed the legs and plugged the holes that were left behind with wood filler. Once the wood filler dried, I sanded the tray with my sander using 120 grit sand paper and then again lightly with 220 grit sand paper. After wiping it down, I stained it with a mixture of two stains (Minwax Espresso and Colonial Maple) that I already had on hand. Once that dried I covered it with a thin coat of Polyurethane.

Not bad for $2.00 and a little bit of elbow grease!

Enjoy your day!
