Patterned Wood Tray

The Mombot Amy has found some thrifty treasures in Target’s dollar spot, including a small wooden tray that bore a strong resemblance to one she’d been eyeing from West Elm. She snatched one up and added a coordinating paper to the interior for a fun punch of pizzazz. So cheap… so simple… and so cute!

Morena from Morena’s Corner unveils her secret for making plastic look like high end pewter. It only took Morena some paint to glam out this once flowery dollar store tray. With metallics looking hot for 2013, this is a must-try technique!

Painted Vanity Tray

On one of her many thrift outings, Kimberly from A Night Owl came across a lovely little antique oval mirror tray from Goodwill for just $1.99. It initially sat unused for a couple of months until Kimberly came across Urban Outfitters’ Cut Lace Vanity Tray. She knew just what she needed to do to incorporate the tray into everyday use and grabbed a can of spray paint!

Eye Chart Tray

Eye chart art has become crazy popular, and I am just loving this tray made by Val from Home Made Modern. You’ll be happy to know that the only tool you need to make your own is a pencil! Val shares a great technique for transferring images with just a pencil, and, as you can see from her tray, it works like a charm!
