How to Make a Dollar Tree Desk Tray

Step-by-step tutorial for dollar tree desk organization tray

I started by grabbing my absolute favourite black paint, which is from Fusion Mineral Paint. And I painted this tray with just one coat of beautiful black paint.

When the coat of paint was dry, I started cutting the sheets of tile to fit right into the bottom of the tray. You can see that I started with a little cutter, but I found scissors to just be faster and easier.

I actually needed two sheets of the tile to be able to fit across the whole bottom of the tray. I started by cutting one sheet to size, and when everything was cut and fit, I just peeled off the backing and stuck them right to the bottom of the tray.

Once I had a reference for the second sheet, and then I measured and stuck the top half down as well. They were really easy to line up so the whole process only took a couple of minutes.

My Finished DIY Desk Tray

I’m using this little tray right now to store all of my office accessories and little trinkets. It’s functional for this space and looks really pretty, so I’m really happy with the results for such a quick and easy DIY.
