I really could start 50% of my blog posts the same way…I found this ___________ at a garage sale for $1. I can’t decide if I’m really cheap or lucky, lol! I can find some goodies for a dollar, like these two casserole servers that were missing their dish. Don’t they scream potential?
If you happen to be spring cleaning your kitchen and find something like this or stumble on one at a thrift store they are SO SIMPLE to make over! All I did was clean them up and cut some wood to fit (well, my husband actually cut the wood because he was being sweet and helping me out!) Depending on your hardware store they might even cut the wood for you!
I used some thin wood I had leftover from another project, cut and sanded down. Then my sweet friend showed me how to condition the wood for food safety. You can get a lesson on how to care for cutting boards here if you need one!
You could: Style a coffee table, round up perfume bottles and bathroom toiletries, serve a wine & cheese tray, make a pretty kitchen island centerpiece, make a dining room table centerpiece, actually put a casserole in the base or on top of the wood, design a pretty beverage station, declutter your desk, have a night table station, wrangle any countertop mess you have and I am sure more…do you have other ideas I overlooked for a good tray? Let me know in the comments.
