DIY Coffee Table Tray

DIY Decorative Tray

For months, I have been on the hunt for a tray to go on top of our industrial coffee table cart in our living room. I could not find one that fit our color scheme, and most that I liked blended too much into our coffee table. So, when I saw this decorative tray article from Martha Stewart, I knew I had to give it a try.

First off, I will say that this project was a little more challenging than I had anticipated. Here are a few tips that I learned along the way. 1) The spray adhesive makes this project very messy. So be sure that you prep your space properly, so you don't ruin any of your furniture with the glue. 2) To save money, I used two 8X11 glass inserts from frames that I wasn't using instead of the recommended acrylic sheet. 3) I would recommend taping down the back of the tray fabric fold with duct tape. The felt will hide the duct tape. 4) I would also recommend using a hot glue gun to secure the felt to the back of the tray to finish the piece off.

How do you customize your living space?
