For Makeover Monday, I thought I would show you a project that has been in the planning stages for 8 years. Whoa. I bought this breakfast tray, a great 50's find, at an estate sale 8 years ago. I love breakfast in bed and knew that this tray would replace the big fat wicker one that I had
been using and which took up a huge storage space, which meant I had to haul it up and down from the basement. This tray was a delightful style, especially with its folding legs. And because it folds flat I can store it next to the refrigerator. I also loved the shabby blue paint ...
however, the plain Jane face of the tray was not exactly my style. I even knew that I wanted pink roses on the tray. At one point I bought a sticker of roses, that I did not really love and applied that. But after doing my hamper last week, I knew what would look great!! That is when I printed off another of the rose grouping I had used for the hamper, which I found at Graphics Fairy, of course, and decoupaged it onto the tray. It happily turned out just as I had imagined it.
Also this week I found another bed tray from the 50's, but one unlike I have seen before. It was 50 cents at a church rummage sale and is some kind of fiberglass, I think, with an interesting 'modern' shape and great folding metal legs.
I thought the floral print was lovely, but realized that would limit me to using white dishes. Fortunately I have a lovely set of white Rosepoint china. Not sure when I will ever need two bed trays, but hey, I am ready when the need arrives.
And just for fun, here is my old blue tray in service, on this just past mother's day. Didn't my husband make up a beautiful breakfast? Of course, I did have to enlist him to help me eat it all, which he readily agreed to do. He's such a good and accommodating man!
And here is wishing you many breakfasts in bed in your future!!
