Salvaged Tray

I have been missing in action for a few days, sorry.  I had myself a good ol' blonde moment--took off to see my mom and sis for a few days and thought, "I have pictures of lots of new things, I will do a post or two from mom's computer."  Problem is, the pictures were back home on my computer.  See, I was naturally blonde at one point in time and gosh darn, I pay good money to stay that way!

So armed with my visual inspiration on Saturday morning, I hit the garage and came up with a few things, this little tray being one my favorite creations from my day of work.
The 2 long sides are picket fence pieces, the short sides and bottom slats are from a pallet,
 and the handles are cut from a broken window sash.
  I used a nail gun to put it together, added some...you know the answer, paint and stain.
So many fun uses for this little tray, where would you use it?


  1. Well it's cute. Should I be worried?.... sometimes I get a few blonde highlights in my hair. Is that enough for those moments? If I don't add those I have gray, and I get senior moments.


  2. Beautiful Becky! Just my style.. I might try to make this myself!

  3. This is really beautiful! I love the rustic feel to it from the unfinished wood.

  4. Beautiful! Blondes ALWAYS have more fun...don't you know?!! Great thinking on your feet!

  5. You did a super great job! Love all the wonderful patina and it's function able too!

  6. This tray is super awesome..I love all of the things you create! You're such an inspiration to me. Thanks for featuring my 80's coffee table on Under $100 Party! I am so flattered to have someone as talented as you, like something I made! Have a great weekend!

  7. Such a simple yet functional design! Love the little handles on the sides.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
