My White Wednesday~~~Trays fromTrash

I am very pleased with how all of these trays turned out....
However, I am even more pleased with the fact I didn't have to spend a dime to make them.
All existing inventory of old frames, a little paint, and even glass left over from other projects.
Combine that with some of my stash of antique laces and handles.....and
Viola'.....sweet trays for tea or for use on your vanity. Large 11x14" reticulated edge brass frame....and I adore this old piece of lace.
Imagine this with your perfumes and trinket boxes.

And this funky one for your entry way to hold your mail and car keys....


Big enough for a teapot and two cups and saucers......afternoon tea favorite!


Perfect
for the coffee table to hold the remotes.



And a large
favorite of mine.....beautiful in the center of your table just as is..

And another one perfect for your vanity items.....and the only one I have to spend money on....
Because I broke the glass :(




And all for the Trade Days Flea Market May 15th.
Thank you, Kathleen, for hosting such a wonderful weekly event. If you want to see more whites or join in the fun, simply visit her at Faded Charm Cottage for all the details.
Thank you for stopping by today...
I always love it when you come!

  1. They all look so beautiful. I brought a piece of lace back with my from Belgium, and I have thought that I'd like to frame it into a tray. Thanks for the ideas.

  7. Jana these are just too cool! I love them all. How will anyone decide which one they love best? Oh well, I guess they will just have to take them all.

  20. Jana,
    I LOVE those trays!
    Especially the ones with the lace.
    I made one and sold it, and totally forgot about it.
    That would look so great on my new Tea & Treat tables. =)
