I’m on a tray kick.
This is actually due to the fact that I got excited, bought a bunch of thrift store trays back in November but didn’t have time to do anything with them until now. So, maybe not a tray-kick so much as a tray-delay.
I see these in thrift stores a lot (as if everyone suddenly realized that putting drinks down on your loved one’s face wasn’t as awesome as they’d hoped) and I’ve bought a few. But they can be challenging – once you remove the glass, and matte you have a big gap in the grooves where those things used to go. I’ve done various work-arounds but it’s always a bit of a hassle.
But I had an idea.
Perhaps a tray for all occasions could be fashioned?
Usually the glass is removable but on this one it wasn’t so, after sanding the wood just a bit (to give the paint something to stick to), I taped it off the glass and gave it a quick coat of spray paint.
And now, with very little effort, I have a changeable tray for any pretty much season or occasion.
So there you go! I am covered for all occasions – as long as I have appropriate wrapping paper and/or a fair amount of advanced warning.
*(I may, or may not have started with Easter to justify the purchase of Peeps.
I may or may not have subsequently realized I wanted to make smore’s but was out of conventional marshmallows.
I then may or may not have discovered that lighting Peeps on fire produces a lot of smoke and that torching Peeps makes one feel like kind of a bad person.
