Last week I made an occasional table to use around the house. This week I am getting ready for the holidays and realized that I could use a drink cart/tray in my dinning room. As usual it was off the garage I went. I found a drawer that someone gave me because they know I love junk and the base of a tall director’s chair that I bought at a garage sale for a dollar.
This is the base. I decided not to paint the base, but I may change my mind later.
This is my free drawer. I loved the raised wood on the front. The drawer had so many blemishes that I knew it was best to paint the beauty.
After both pieces were complete I bolted the drawer to the base.
The drawer looked too white on top of the dark legs. That inspired me to “line the drawer” with some great brown and white paper. I think it pulled the two together.
I like how the drawer lining pulls the white and brown of the legs together and makes the white look less stark.
I used Annie Sloan chalk paint and dark wax to finish the drawer.
The tray is the perfect size to serve drinks.
It is such a great size that it could be used for so many things.
I love how the dark stain brings out the details of the drawer.
