I had some small pieces left from a pallet.
I kept the wood rough and let it look old by adulterate
the acrylic grey painted. And sanding it with 60 grit sandpaper.
The paint wasn’t dry yet.Then you get that old look.
Put some zinc on the corners and the you have your rustic tray.

Super cool, nice idea, amazing that a old pallet can bet back to life like that.
