Thrift Store Remake ... Catch-All Tray

Earlier this month, we shared with you the 5 Essentials for a Happy Entrance ... among those essentials was a tray.  At Little Yellow Couch we love to be thrifty and add a handmade touch to the vintage treasures we pick up in our travels.  Metal trays are aplenty in local thrift stores and come in all shapes and sizes.  Unfortunately, they also can come in some pretty uninspired designs.  Instead of color and pattern, pay attention to the overall shape.  A quick coat of spray paint and some contrasting paint or paper gave these trays a whole new look.  Place one on your entryway table, dresser, desk or any place you need a catch-all.  

*Check out the Paper Source for a great selection of decorative papers for decoupage.  We used the Feathers  and Glasses for our trays.
