In this blog post, we will give you step-by-step guide on how to make a custom rolling tray for your kitchen. We’ll show you how to choose the right materials, how to build the tray, and finally, how to finish it off.
What you need
To make a custom rolling tray for your kitchen, you will need the following supplies:
-A sheet of aluminum foil
-A ruler or a straight edge
-Old newspapers or some other sturdy paper
-Sandpaper or a metal file
-Paint or stain of your choice (optional)
-Ruler or scissors
-Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Trace the outline of the rolling tray onto the aluminum foil using a ruler or a straight edge. Ensure the outline is large enough to create accurate measurements later on. If you paint the rolling tray, leave enough space around the edges to apply paint easily.
- Cover the rolling tray with old newspapers or some other sturdy paper and then sandpaper or a metal file to rough the surface. This will help prevent your paint from sticking to the aluminum foil.
- Paint or stain the aluminum foil according to your preference. Be sure to allow plenty of time for dryness before handling the roller tray carefully so that it does not get scratched.
