For the longest time I wanted to do something creative with my KLACK Ikea Wood Tray. It was plain white on the inside and showing wear and tear.
First, the bottom of the tray needed to be reinforced with a piece of plywood. My husband's handy work!
We had some 12x12 mosaic tiles left from our shower redo, so I peeled off the mini squares to create a mosaic that spelled out SEA.
After sanding the inside I laid out the design.
Once all the tiles were glued on (with hot glue), I took my Ikea hack tray outside for the messy part -grouting! This was last week and it was warm and sunny.
I used premixed grout.
The trick here is not to wash away the grout. Make sure the sponge is not too wet. For a thorough cleaning wait til grout is completely dry.
Et voilà. My completed Ikea hack! And the Kitchen Island is from Ikea as well!
