But first, here’s my take…

A Grain Sack Stripe Inspired Tray

This is how the tray looked when I received it.

I gave it a quick sanding with my orbital sander and 150 grit sandpaper.

I used a small piece of sandpaper to sand the handle.

After I finished sanding, I wiped the tray down and stained it using English Chestnut from Minwax, being careful to wipe off any excess stain (otherwise the wood gets sticky).

I let the tray sit over night, then taped my first stripe. I painted it with white chalk paint.

Can I just say I love this ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape with Edge-Lock from 3M?! As long as I went over it with my finger and ensured a good seal, I didn’t have any paint bleeding beneath the tape. #YeahBaby

Look at that beautiful, straight line!!!

I did a little measuring for my second stripes, so that they’d be as straight as possible.

After the paint on the second set of stripes was dry, I removed the tape.

I love how this tray turned out! And it’s perfect for the fall!

  7. Tiffany I adore your version with the tray! The staining and grain sack stripe is so homey and fits perfectly in your home. I must say I love the tray on your table, but the tray propped on the shelf is still really cute. Pinned and shared.

  8. I love that you let the wood grain show in the tray and the grain sack stripe is really pretty! Lovely, neutral decor!!

  9. I love stripes of any kind – and especially grain sack stripes! This turned out great! Thanks so much for linking up with us at The Creative Circle! I hope you’ll join us again this week so we can see what else you’ve been up to!
