I've been wanting a great tray to use as a centerpiece for my dining room table. I envisioned something long and black with great handles. So when I found this cabinet door in the as-is/salvage section at IKEA I knew exactly what to use it for!
And check out the great price! It is in perfect condition and just the right shade/sheen of black that I wanted.
I love IKEA. Every time I visit family in Utah or California I have to stop in for a "quick" little jaunt around the place. Yeah right...if you've ever been to Ikea you know you can't spend less than 2 hours there because they trap you in!
I bought some wooden wheels at Hobby Lobby to use as the "feet." I spray painted them black and added some felt pads to the bottom so they won't scratch up my table. I used Liquid Nails to glue the feet on the bottom of the tray.
I found these handles at Lowes...they're kind of pewter-ish.
I drilled and screwed in the handles....well, actually, my very handy husband did that part for me. Sorry I lied. Power tools scare me.
And now I have the tray I've been looking for!
