D.I.Y. Junky Tray

Do you all remember this post?  This is my D.I.Y. Herb Garden.
I decided to junk/funk it up a bit. 

I thought how handy it would be to have a tray sort of thing to carry the herbs around.

Either to take them outside for sunlight, water, or just to another area in the house.  

Sooo...........

This is what I came up with.

I simply took 3 boards of wood and glued them together.




Spray painted them and let them dry.


Distressed them with Distress Ink in - Walnut Stain





Clear coated for protection and so that the Distress Ink wouldn't rub off on clothes or hands.




Added some vinyl and handles.










Finished!!!











Hope you enjoyed my how to project!

Laters,
