TILE TRAY DIY 

This project was the perfect way to upcycle a scrap piece of tile left over from our patio build. I wanted to create a chic outdoor tray that would match our new patio.

You can make this with any piece of tile and hardware handles — its such a great DIY not only for creating a perfect custom piece that fits your style, but also makes an amazingly chic handmade gift.

Materials

optional

Instructions

  1. Measure and center your hardware on each end of the tile, mark placement of the screws for the hardware holes
  2. Drill holes in the tile so that the screw fits through with little wiggle room. Check the materials list for bit recommendations and the video for drilling tips and details.
  3. On the back, create countersink holes for the locknuts by drilling out part of the holes so that the locknut fits and sits flush
  4. Attach the hardware by securing screws and locknuts through the hole and tightening snugly
  5. Add felt pads to each corner on the back of the tray so that the tile doesn't scratch surfaces

Notes

My favorite hardware is the Goldenwarm bar hardware from amazon — comes in a variety of sizes and finishes. I used the 12 3/4" bars in my Kitchen
