Wine Barrel Inspired Serving Tray

 I fell in love with these wine barrel inspired serving trays.  What I was seeing are ones that were hand painted.  Some being true wine barrel tops, while others being inspired.

 It hit me that these would make awesome Christmas gifts, and a nice new product for my online shop.  Instead of just hand painting the information on to the tray, we could actually engrave it with the information.
 Engraving the trays makes them even nicer, as you won't have to worry about the painting coming off due to frequent use.
 I am really pleased with how they turned out.  I had my husband engrave the family name and their established date at the bottom.  Next I painted the lettering black.  I allowed it to dry before sanding.
 After I sanded the lettering, it was time to add the stain.  The stain I used is dark walnut.  It is a nice way to finish the lettering too.  It covers up any spots that the paint was removed when sanding.
 I chose on these to just apply 1 coat of stain.  I was in a bit of a hurry, but next time I will probably sand them more and apply more layers of stain.
 My husband applied a few layers of varnish.  This just gives it a more finished look and adds more protection.
Once the varnish has dried the handles were added.  I really do love the way these turned out.  I gifted them each a set of wine glasses and champagne glasses that were seen in my last post.  They all seemed to love them.  Hopefully, my customers will too!

Thanks for stopping by!

The manager was prompt to respond to any question I had, patient with all my bridal anxiety, and most importantly, the entire wedding was managed flawlessly (as was our rehearsal). The food at NYC wedding venues was amazing, and the venue was gorgeous.

Yes, the store is not that big. Yes, there is just one lady helping customers and you might have to wait your turn. But when it comes to quality, this Flower Delivery New York is the best.
