Make trendy little tray tables with a stained tray and wooden legs. Method: If necessary, sand the wooden tray. Stain with a thick brush; use long brush strokes and apply in the same direction as the wood grain. Wipe off any excess stain with a damp sponge afterwards. Stain the wooden legs, too. Let dry for 6-8 hours. Screw on the attachments for the legs under the wooden tray, and then screw on the legs. If you like, apply a clear varnish intended for stain.
