Hello! Happy Tuesday to you all!
This tray was a Goodwill purchase from last fall. I believe I spent $3.00 on it. It was actually my first time going to a Goodwill store here in the city where we live. I wasn't sure if I would find anything... Then I saw this tray. Apparently it was intended to showcase embroidery or needlepoint back in the day and protected it under glass, hence the matte and glass inside of the tray. I don't do embroidery or needlepoint, (although I wish I did) but I knew that this tray would be lovely all gussied up in my dining room. I brought it home and spray painted it white.
I tried to make the matte work, but I didn't like how it looked. So I ditched the matte and put a place mat from World Market inside. The place mat matches my table runner on the dining room table. I love this tray because of the glass that protects the fabric. It is wiped clean easily and I don't have to worry about staining the fabric.
For now, the tray sits on my little gray table I painted this past winter. I am planning on changing out the fabric inside of the tray this fall when I incorporate a new color into the dining room.
Trays seem to be all the rage these days. I'm glad to join in finally, even if I'm a little behind... Have you ever made over a tray? I would love to hear about it! Please feel free to leave a comment or a link to your blog. Comments make my day brighter and I love checking out new blogs, especially "new to the blog world" ones like mine.
