I saw this video on how to make your own tray and thought that this would be such a simple craft. Here's the video. Watch Martha get a little snarky, throw in her own ideas, and also say how she hates to mess up. Here's the video.
Anyway, I bought this gray and white chevron fabric that I LOVE. I used it on my chair makeover and had some leftover fabric so I used it for this tray. It was super easy to make. Here are the directions from the Martha Stewart site.
Tray with fabric. It's not perfect. If you want it perfectly flat in all areas, you need a brand new tray. This one had some rust, burnt spots, etc.
With the glass piece. I got a piece of glass cut at a glass shop for $7.
All done. A nice tray to hold the remotes!
Nice & Neat
You could make one of these in any shape and for any need. Make a smaller one to hold your jewelry on your dresser or one for your keys by the door. You could make these to hold plants. The possibilities are endless!
