I started making these pallet serving trays last year with a Thanksgiving and Christmas theme. You can find them here and here.
But now that the weather is turning into Spring and soon it will be Summer I decided to make a few with a tropical fun theme.
And we needed something to use with our Chili's bar table.
They are the same simple design of combining four pallet boards about 22 - 24 inches long. I simply painted on the back round color. The letters were traced then painted in and the palm tree I just free hand painted.
I then attached the side boards with adhesive glue. The handle pieces I did in a walnut stain.
The handles were purchased at Home Depot for about $1.80 each. I also attached a small square pallet piece with screws to the corners to work as feet. A semi- clear coat of poly was applied to the finished tray.
I also painted some for the Bar and Grill because that is what we always seem to do together!!
I always like the way the handles are different from the painted wood. It just give them a little distinction.
This is a simple project that anyone can do and have fun with. Just paint it however you would like.
Hope you enjoyed a little mid week Tiki Time!
