recently thrifted

Hey all!

So, I’ve been on a bit of an organizing tear lately. During the process, I’ve found that for clutterbugs like myself, trays aren’t a decorating essential…they’re just an essential. Which is exactly why there’s one in nearly every room of my house, ranging from metal to mirrored, rattan to plastic…all thrifted. Here are a couple recent finds…

I saw this bright floral tray at the Savers in Apple Valley and  had to snatch it up. Aluminum or steel trays are the easiest to find thrifting…coming across matching sets isn’t at all uncommon, either. I think this one on its own cost a cool $2.

I feel like this mirrored tray could be right at home in an eight-year-old girl’s princess themed bedroom…and I’m ok with that.  The gold bows are a tad cheeseball, but I think that makes me love it even more. It cost me $3.

Do you decorate with trays? Aren’t they the handiest things ever?

Have a happy night!

  1. I most certainly do! I have a great black-and-white one in my kitchen with photos of coffee on it. As you may have guessed, it houses my French press, electric water heater, and coffee beans. :)

  2. I can’t ever get enough trays! I use them to organize my things in the bathroom, on top of my dresser, the t.v. remotes, knick knacks in the living room… Oh, and they’re great for eating in front of the t.v. when that is necessary ;)
    I love that mirrored tray with the bow handles! So great!

  3. Instead of trays I use vintage kitchenware (think Pyrex loaf pans and casserole dishes)to organize my bills, loose change, jewelry, etc.

    LOVE the princess tray & the unicorn card I spy behind it.
