The easiest way to ground an arrangement, turn an ottoman into a coffee table, or corral a bunch of clutter is with a tray. I can’t get enough of them…seriously I might have a problem. I see a tray in need and I have to rescue it. I bring home a new tray probably every other time I go to the thrift store.
Trays come in all shapes and sizes, and you can use them anywhere. I am over on Wayfair today sharing Decorating With Trays in Every Room. I detail the 10 trays you need to style every surface in your home. My guest post is full of ideas on how and where to use trays, along with pictures of favorite trays around my home.
I loooove your tray within a tray on your basement ottoman, where you keep the remotes. So brilliant–I would never have thought to have a remote tray layered on a larger tray. So neat!
Melissa, Thank you. Since I can’t keep myself from bringing home trays, I have started layering them. It is so fun!
Jackie, love the tray post as I just recently realized how great they are and that I need more. :) where is your favorite place to buy trays at a reasonable price?
Petra, I source and buy trays from everywhere. I don’t have a go to source for that one. Wayfair has a huge selection with a good range in prices. On the post I shared some of my favorites.
This just made my day! All this time I’ve been looking in the wrong places for the perfect tray. DIY is where it’s at!
