9 minutes and no mullah! New to me tray.

Someone at work was throwing away this wooden tray.  It had a divider missing from the center.
  It probably was one of those keys, coin, jewelry holders in it's past life. 


Cardboard insert, ugly just needs covered up right?

....and now after... a great anything tray.


Did I mention totally FREE.  I had the fabric scrap from a previous curtain creation.  Out of Africa and into my very useful tray.  And yes for you OC folks, I still have some glue removal to take care of.


Total makeover time 10 minutes, to cut and tape the fabric down around ugly black felt cardboard insert.  I'm on the lookout for some great looking handles for the sides.

I'm playing with free friday see Here
at a very blessed nest
and here - victory of the week

  1. Oh that is so awesome! I just love it when you can take "junk" and make it look so lovely!

  2. I was just telling Melissa how much I liked your blog! You are giving me new perspective on old items. It's not helping me with the 'cleaning out' of my stuff, but it's helping my creative juices!! :O)

  3. great redo! i love it when hubby says to me "what are you going to do with that?" and all I can say is "i'm not sure yet, but it sure has potential!" Glad you saw the potential!
