Tray Chic!

The other day I bought myself yet another tray for corralling small items around the home, they’re just so stylish and versatile too!  Trays work well in the kitchen for mail or utensils, in the office for bills and desk supplies, in the family room for remotes, books and magazines, and in the entry for keys and cell phones.

You can personalize them by lining store bought trays with maps from your travels or creating your own fabric lined tray with spray adhesive.

  1. I’ve had my eye on the West Elm trays for a while now…need to order! The uses for them are endless!

  2. I see good trays regularly at my favorite thrift shops for 2 – 3 dollars, making the DIY option irresistible.

  3. It is so nice to see a source list at the end with ideas on where you can find what you are talking about. Thank you!

  4. I love trays and have been buying more and more of them to organize myself around our home. So many to choice from and I could buy so many of them. ;-)
