Adding a nice touch with trays....
O.K. so yesterday I admitted to being a "chairaholic", well that isn't the only thing I find myself hoarding, err collecting. I also love trays. I have a Pinterest board dedicated to just that, TRAYS. I love organization even though my house at the moment doesn't look it, and trays offer a great way of displaying my found treasures or organizing them in one place. My next couple of blogs will probably be on this same topic as I still haven't gone out and gotten more staples to finish my first ever upholstery project. Let me show you project # 1 as I'm calling it. It doesn't even involve spray paint, which come to think of it is probably something else I hoard.
When I saw this I said "oh yes, please".
I actually wanted something slightly larger for my night stand. A place to put the remote (and yes in this family I get the remote), and somewhere to put any jewelry I might have forgotten to take off. As luck would have it, that same day I discovered this great how-to blog on how to make a tray just like this one, but the monogram, was FREE.
Now, I have my own to ooh la la over. Here's how I did it. I found this fabulous site which offers lots of different styles. You can find it here: http://printablemonogram.com/product-category/acrylic-tray-insert/
|The first thing I did was to laminate it. I don't have a fancy machine just individual sheets I picked up at Target. The exact tray I used can be found here at the Container Store. http://www.containerstore.com/shop/jewelryStorage/traysOrganizers?utm_medium=Affiliate&productId=10028194&utm_source=Linkshare&utm_campaign=Linkshare_Affiliate&sku=10050369|
I know I spent a whole $5.99 plus shipping for this!
Here's my handy, dandy tools.
I placed the tray on top of my laminated paper and made small snips as to where it needed to be cut. Once that was done all I needed to do was place the sheet inside and voila....
See I told you I get the remote! Tell me about some of your favorite Pinterest projects below.
