DIY – Easy-Off Goodwill Tray Makeover

Happy Sunday, Friends!
I’m starting the week off on the right foot and blogging on a beautiful Sunday morning.  It makes my heart so happy.
Today I’m sharing with you a little DIY Goodwill coffee table tray makeover.
I’ve been searching for a large coffee table tray all over town and the cheapest I could find was one for $25.  I was looking for something $10 or less, you know, just in case the idea of a coffee table tray didn’t work out – I have three kids, after all, so who’s to say the tray and the items within it would actually stay in place.
I digress.
Anyhow, I was perusing the aisles of Goodwill a couple of weeks ago and spotted this beautiful wooden tray for $7.00!  It was actually in great shape and the wood stain was beautiful, but I figured this could also be the perfect opportunity to give it a little Easy-Off Oven Cleaner makeover.
Here’s what I was working with before, it was beautiful and large!
I took the tray outside and sprayed it with Easy-Off.  I then let it sit for about 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, I put on some gloves and scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed.  I could tell the process was working as the natural wood started to come through.
Our hose was put away for the season up here in Michigan, so I filled an empty milk jug with water and poured water all over the tray and rinsed away the Oven-Off and old stain residue.
After a few rinses, I let the tray sit out in the sun until it dried.
Here’s the finished product!  I absolutely love how it turned out and if ever I want to stain it, it’s ready to go!

I’m also happy to report that the only item that keeps getting moved are my beads.  Jane, my three year old, keeps using the beads as a “wig” so that she can be Rapunzel.  Haha!  Love her so much!

What do you think?  Have you used the Easy-Off method?  I kind of want to use it on all the things!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
Have a beautiful Sunday.
Marie 🙂
