After painting each section until it was fully covered, I let it sit for 30 seconds or more, and I wiped excess off with a old rag cloth.

I let it dry completely and I love how it brought out the texture of in the wood. I am so in love with this stain and the best part is that it's water based!

    Fantastic Target score! I would have grabbed the tray too, so much you can do with them. Stain, paint mod podge . . . Like having these for just as you have styled, snacks and reading material. Also like when doing projects, keeps items together and easy to move if not finished. Makes a wonderful gift idea too, maybe with a stencil or phrase on it. So many possibilities!

    1. I agree Naomie so much fun and so many possibilities. Thanks for sharing how you use your trays and love the gift idea – ooh how much fun would that be to create and personalize.
