Today I am joining up with 10 other bloggers to feature projects that we each created using a Silhouette cutting machine. If you are not familiar with a Silhouette it is an electronic cutting machine that can cut a variety of materials to create stencils, cut outs, designs, etc.
I love my Silhouette! I have created many projects with this amazing little machine. Please check out my Hangry Kitchen Tray and then stick around to see what the other 10 lovely ladies created with their Silhouette.
If you are not familiar with the term Hangry then you are about to learn a new word. Hangry is a combination of Hungry and Angry…basically that irritable feeling one gets when they are hungry.
I love this term and for several years now I can finally define these feeling with one word. I love this word so much I decided it would be funny to put it on a tray.
I was lucky enough to score some scrap wood at The Home Depot to make this project and still have left overs.
TOOLS FOR HANGRY KITCHEN TRAY
- 80 grit sandpaper and/or sander
- Nail gun or hammer
- Paint brush
If you don’t own a saw, hardware stores like The Home Depot and Lowe’s can make your cuts.
SUPPLIES FOR HANGRY KITCHEN TRAY
- 2 – 1 x 4 x 8
- Wood glue
- 1 1/4 inch brad nail/nails
- Paint – Folk Art Chalk Paint in White Adirondack and Rich Black
- Drawer pulls
- Wax sealer
- Spray Sealer
CUTS FOR HANGRY KITCHEN TRAY
- 4 – 1 x 4 at 25 inches
- 2 – 1 x 4 at 14 1/4 inches
Step 2) Apply wood glue to the shorter (14 1/4 inches) board and set the four longer (25 inches) boards on top of the shorter boards and nail the longer boards to the shorter board. Repeat for the other side. After gluing and nailing is complete this is what you will have. I sanded the tray making sure to sand any rough spots, edges and corners.
Step 3) Paint and stencil the tray. I used Folk Art Chalk Paint in White Adirondack to paint the tray and Rich Black for the stenciling. I used my Silhouette Cameo to create the stencil. This stencil was quite difficult and time consuming to apply since there was so many letters…I started getting hangry cause it was taking so long ;-). Optional – I lightly sanded to add a rustic finish. Then I applied a mixture of 4:1 water to black paint, let it sit for about 30 seconds and then wiped it off with an old t-shirt. This further helps add an aged look by bringing out the imperfections in the wood, sanded areas and edges. Apply a wax sealer, allow to dry, buff it. Apply a spray sealer for extra protection from stains from foods, drinks, etc.
Step 4) Attach the drawer pulls.
I love the humor in this tray! I love how it also functions as a fun sign for my kitchen.
