DIY Quatrefoil Wood Tray

Hi friends! 
Happy Hump Day!
Yesterday I shared with you my organized family command center!  I’m proud to report it still looks like that!  Haha.  That’s saying something for us! 
You might have noticed the cute little tray that is holding the pen cup and “mail box”.

It’s a super cute little addition to our newly organized space!

It started out as a plain little $3 wooden tray from Hobby Lobby.

I gave it a few light coats of Krylon’s Pebble spray paint.  Then, I opened up my Silhouette software and used the “geometric background (lg)” pattern to cut my white vinyl.

I weeded my vinyl (the absolute WORST part of vinyl projects) and used the negative space of the vinyl so it would look like my tray was stenciled.  I used transfer paper to transfer my vinyl to my tray.  Note: vinyl doesn’t like to stick to spray paint that well.  Boo!  Try acrylic next time.

Here’s what I ended up with:

Yay!  I love it!  Super simple (I’m not a fan of complicated).  Super quick (seriously….nap time only lasts so long).  And super cheap (well….because I’m just a cheap-o).
So there ya have it!  Now…..go forth and make a cutesy tray!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read each and every one of them and work hard to respond to all of them that I can.
