Organized For Less

A client sent me this tray she loved for her coffee table. I instantly loved it too, what is not to like about a lacquered item? However, at this size and for her specific use it was on the pricey side. Then I came across these trays at Mitchell Gold and they had the PERFECT orange (not pictured) lacquered tray in 2 great (large) sizes, for half the price! It was one of those lucky moments.

Other large trays for a great price can be found right now at West Elm....
Don't you love how a tray can make any space looked instantly organized?

Oh I love them! I have actually gone to West Elm about 4 times to get one but can never decide on a color. Maybe I need more than one?

Trays are the best! I like to place them on coffee tables, a great item to keep magazines, coasters and remotes from getting out of control!

Great tip! I am always looking for lacquered trays and they can sometimes be hard to find at a reasonable price. I'll have to check out Mitchell Gold!

I do love trays. They make everything so put together looking. I picked up a cute on at Target over the summer. =)

I love trays - I want to find just the right ottomon so that I can place a lovely tray upon it (of course, this will be when my kids are much older, so they won't break it!).

Trays make things look so much fancier. I've always loved them.

Oh, I love those new west elm trays! I have trays all over my house for gathering junk, and given the amount of clutter that wants to accumulate, I'd say it helps a TON! Might have to go for those west elm trays! Thanks for the heads-up!

I found a fantastic tray at HomeGoods to corral all the magazines that accumulate on our coffee table. Good looks + good functionality!

I use trays constantly- especially nice to have dinner on a tray in bed or in your cosy chair wen you are sick or have had a rough day. My cocktail table would be a mess without its tray!

Oh, what a fabulous find! Thank you for sharing:)

I'm all about trays. I love the way they can give a sense of order or elegance to almost anything - from a stack of magazines to a collection of silver photo frames. Thanks for a new source.
