Bath Trays

I fell in love with bath trays every since I spied this.


So while I was redoing my spare bath I knew I had to have one.  What I didn't know was that these trays can be expensive, so I did the next best thing; make my own.

I needed wood unfortunately I don't own an electric saw and I don't know of anyone who has a saw to cut wood for me so I shopped around for a substitute.  

At Kelly's I came across boards 12" x 24", although this was a shy bit too short I decided to improvise.  I had some spare molding laying around and shims so decided to give it a try.  It worked out perfect!

For adhesion I used wood glue; caulking was used to fill in the crevices.

For my Spare Bath I kept it white and added raised stenciling for detail, sealing it with poly.

This also makes for nice shelving for tub accessories

This is a terrific way to beautify a tub and accessorize.

For my bath I was inspired by a bronze & silver metal vase I keep on top of my tub.

So I used metallic paints.

By candle light.

Ready for Christmas!

Hope everybody had a terrific Thanksgiving!  I'm taking a break from studies to get into the holiday spirit.  I've started making gifts but haven't finished, but I did get my Christmas tree up and wanted to share.  My color theme this year is green & blue. I was pretty lazy, so I opted for lots of mesh and less ornaments.  Gotta admit, it was my easiest tree ever!

I'll be posting my hand crafted gifts as I complete them.

Have a great day and don't forget to LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!
