DIY Serving Tray

This has been on my to-do list since we moved it. Or maybe even before. But it became even more urgent when we bought the new couch with an ottoman. Now I have no room for a coffee table, but that means nowhere safe to put drinks and essentials. However, the previous owners left us lots of junk in the barns, so this one was a snap.

Gross old window uncovered in a heap in the barn:

Add some barn door hardware as handles:

The window was in surprisingly great shape once it was cleaned up, so I added a little paint and distressed the edges, added the hardware, and then used an Uppercase Living decal I had packed away on the glass. (I had minor trouble with the decal, so it may get a new one in the future. Talk about frustration!) And here you have our new serving tray:

Just finished this little guy and we already love it. We think it looks cute in that rustic way, but is also super handy!

Well, what do you think? We are happy with the way this quick and easy project came out! Have you ever tried anything like this?

    Can you please let me know where you purchased the handle hardware for your serving tray? Very nice by the way.
