A while ago I picked up a tray at a yard sale that had an old glass bottom, overtop of an old cross-stitch. I decided I wanted to turn it into a cork tray!
First I spray painted it silver as I wanted it to semi match my silver and black bar cart (while painting some other things).
I begged friends to save their corks (one friend has a Wine Tasting Party every year, so she was the prime contributor to the tray).
Then I laid out how I wanted the cork to lay in the tray. I then went row by row and hot glued them down.
The newer corks (that aren't actually make of cork, but something else) were the biggest pain, as they didn't really stick well- so if you can stick to the more traditional corks, they work best.
It is all complete and looking fab! (the paint is a little chipped on the one side, but I think that gives it character. haha
