For less than $6, I picked up more than enough wood to make my tray.
I cut pieces to fit the surface of the bowl then primed and painted the wood.
I used the template from Tatertots and Jello found here. To get the size you need:
1. copy the image and place it in a word document
2. right click on the image to change the size
3. print the image
Next I placed the template in the center of the bottom of the tray. By the way, I didn't assemble the tray until after all painting was complete. I took a pencil and traced around the design.
This is what it looks like after this step. I took a small paint brush and painted the quatrefoil with glossy white paint. Next I hot glued the pieces into place.
Now we have a tray that is the perfect size for the back of the toilet.
Just a reminder that the fall linky party begins tomorrow.
