I am so glad that you have come to visit today. I had One King’s Lane email mail me the other day and ask if I wouldn’t help them show my visitors followers how to use trays to corral my pretty things and how I use them. Well that was easy for me because I am a neat freak and I use trays a lot to keep my pretties from becoming junkies.
So this is how I use trays to keep my things organized.
First let’s start in the kitchen. If you are one of my followers then you know how I use this tray in my kitchen as a place where I coral my hot drinks. The canisters are full of tea, tea bags, and hot chocolate. I use a blue ball jar for sugar and my tea-pot goes neatly next to everything. I don’t have to search through the cupboards to have my morning cup, it is all right there next to my microwave so I can heat the water.
This is one of my favorite tray baskets I use to carry my tea to my bedroom for a nice cup before bed.
This basket its perfect because it has handles on both ends for carrying.
At the end of my bed I have a beautiful antique Butler’s Tray. I keep some of my many decorating books there on hand to look through with my hot tea before bed.
How do you corral your pretties? I have a tray from One King’s Lane that I bought several years ago to keep my beauty aids close at hand near my bathroom.
I liked this tray because it is easy to clean, versatile, and very french. It’s in the colors of aqua, grey and gold. Just my colors.
You can use a tray to corral many things, I have a small wooden one sitting on my end table to hold TV remotes. Here I use this ornate silver tray to put a lamp and some lovelies on.
It gives it more of a collected feel rather than having them scattered all over and it adds some contrast from all of the white.
Now that you have seen the ways that I use trays to organize things in my home here is a link that will take you to see a video that shows how One King’s Lane .com uses their trays. Here is a link to check out what they are selling (I’m not being paid for this, just helping them). I hope you check them out it really shows some great ideas.
Have a wonderful weekend!
