Items Needed for Tray
Piece of wood from Lowe's (I used an 18 x 24 piece of wood)
First you want to either cut the piece of wood to the size you would like, if you buy it at Lowe's they will cut it for you. Next, cut the trim, this can be done with a good pair of scissors or small saw. Then paint all sides of the wood and trim with the colors of your choice, let it dry for about 10 minutes and paint another coat on it. You can also paint a triple coat sealer on it to protect the wood from getting wet.
Hot glue or use the E6000 glue to permanently secure the trim onto the sides of the wood. Let it dry overnight. For the last step, you will want to measure where you want to put the handles, use a ruler or measuring tape and remember, measure twice, cut once. Drill holes for the handles and then screw the handles into place and enjoy.
