I have acquired many wine crates recently, so I made some of them into serving trays. I have given a lot of these as gifts and sold quite few also. I use them when we BBQ to carry all the things needed outside.
Paint them the colors you want, I get my paint from the hazardous waste recycling center in my area for free. I choose the water based paints and have gotten pints, quarts, and gallons for re-doing projects. Outside type paint works great too. I had some handles that I have picked up here and there or removed from past projects, and put one on each end for carrying. This one I decoupaged some ME pieces on from an old calender. Can you tell I'm a packrat? :0)
Also in this pic is a old ceramic bowl gleaned from a thrift store with decoupaged fabric on it. This I just use for chips and such and wipe out the inside with a damp sponge.
