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.
There are many options available in retail stores and online, here’s a collection of uber-chic trays, any one will bring both function and flair!
