- Wood Trays - Sandpaper 240 Grit - Tack Cloth - Top Coat Acrylic Spray - Wood Stain
Step 1 Use sandpaper to sand the top edge and around the outer rim.
Step 2. Use a paint brush to apply the stain to the top and outside edges. Also, stain the inside edge since part of it will be visible.
Step 3. Once the stain is dry, use a foam brush to apply two coats of clear polyurethane to the top and outside edges.
Step 4. The backs of the trays are pretty thin (about 3/16″). You will reinforce them before you hang them.
