THRIFTY TRAYS

As I was doing a little dusting last week, I started to notice the obnoxious amount of trays I have.
Then I realized how much better everything looks when corralled onto a tray.

I found this striped Ikea tray at Goodwill for $.50.
Throw a few wine corks and accessories on it 
and it helps take away focus from  the ugly TV components. 


I picked up this glossy black number from the thrift store also.


 This matted silver tray in our master bathroom also came from Goodwill.


Another Goodwill find, this leather tray helps keep our liquor looking classy.


This metal square box, which I use as a tray at times, came from an antique store.


I almost always use some sort of tray when setting up a buffet here on our peninsula.  
Yep, you guessed it, this one came from Goodwill also. 


This basket serves as a tray to hold our TV remotes and a few magazines on the ottoman.


I think this brass beauty is my favorite tray, and most expensive at a whopping $20!  
This one came from an antique store also.


I bought this black tray at Goodwill a while back, 
added some fabric and mod podge and handed it off to a friend. 


This galvanized metal tray came from the Pottery Barn outlet and I use it for all sorts of things. 
Right now, it's holding wooden letters in the center of our activity table.  


The little blue tray came from Ikea and helps keep the boys' toothpaste and toothbrushes looking neat.


If you'r not into thrifting or antiquing, Ikea and Homegoods 
are both great sources for inexpensive trays. 

I think my tray obsession is worse than my lamp obsession.  
Uh oh.  
At least trays can be stacked neatly away.
My lamp stash is starting to take up a lot of room in the storage area.

  1. Yup, I'd definitely call that an obsession! But every one of them looks perfect in it's setting, so I am guessing no one is counting, just admiring!

  4. Wow! I can't believe you find SO many goodies at Goodwill. Our local Goodwill is SO gross that I haven't been back since trying to find an ugly Christmas sweater 4 years ago. The stuff is honestly disgusting.
