$5 DIY Nautical Tray


Since we are moving to Florida at the end of the summer, I thought it might be fun to try out some DIY Nautical décor but with a rustic and simple edge. Nothing too crazy.
I found these unfinished wood trays at Michaels in a 2 pack for $4!
I painted one white and then used some frog tape to add Navy blue stripes
Then a hotglued some rope accent trim ($1.99 at Hobby Lobby) around the handles.
(my favorite part)
And there you have it! I thought about stenciling a giant letter “H” in the middle, or even a compass. But for now I’m content. We’ll see what happens. 
With the smaller tray, I used my favorite Dark Walnut Stain and I’ve used it for so many things, including for these popsicles in my 15 Summer Popsicle Recipes post.
and HERE for my outdoor picnic ideas that I shared on Studio 5!
