Honeycomb tile tray makeover
Even if you haven’t been a zest fan for a long, it’s probably easy to see that we love to host, we love hexagon honeycomb shapes, and we always love a good thrift store find. Which is why I am super excited about today’s post! Not only does it combine a lot of my favorites, but the outcome is so stellar and it was SO easy. While at Goodwill a few weeks ago I stumbled upon this adorable hexagon serving tray for six bucks. Although I love wood and nature, I just wasn’t feeling the combo for this board. But I loved that it had a great structure and good bones and was the perfect size for a smaller coffee table. Our wood coffee table is pretty dark so I thought I would bring in some contrast by making this tray nice and light and white!
Serving tray (any shape would work!)
All purpose gorilla glue
Paint & brush
Start by removing any stickers, removing the residue, and giving it a good wipe down from all dust.
Next I grabbed some acrylic white paint and got to work! This took two coats. I didn’t waste my time or paint with covering what I knew my tiles would cover.
Let the paint dry and then get to applying your gorilla glue on the back of your tiles and placing on the tray.
Rather then getting intense with a tile cutter, I kind of like the organic look of having the edge of the tiles create space between the tray. I know it might not be for everyone but I am loving it, kind of reminds me even more of a honeycomb- natural.
Let dry based on directions of your epoxy and get to enjoying with your guest!!
Oh and can we talk about how it perfectly matches these tile coasters I made awhile back??
