DIY Faux Bois Breakfast Tray

Carrie blogs at Making Lemonade.  I could totally relate to her description of the item that started this makeover.  "Enter this generic breakfast tray that we’ve had for at least a decade," Carrie begins, "the type you get at Bed Bath & Beyond in the hopes that life will be filled with breakfasts in bed and lazy Sunday mornings.  Then the reality hits and you find your 2-year-old using it as a surfboard down the deck stairs.  HYPOTHETICALLY."
