Have you noticed that more than ever before, people are jumping on board to repurpose just about anything and everything they can get their hands on? Maybe it’s our creative way of saving money and having a positive impact on the environment. Maybe we just like the idea of taking an object that can be used for one task and repurposing it to use for an entirely different purpose. Whatever the reason, if repurposing items is something you like to do, then we’d like to introduce you to the new BFF of your home décor – the galvanized tray.
If you don’t have a galvanized tray in your home somewhere, you are missing out. They are really the workhorse of the home and can be used in just about any room and for a variety of purposes. Below are just a few ideas to help you decorate this fun and functional decorating staple.
Small Trays Matter Too
Sure you’ve probably seen a variety of big trays too, but smaller trays are perfect for corralling a small collection of items together and brightening little areas where big trays simply won’t work. Bonus, you can sit a small tray on a stool and turn it into a bit of a side table so someone could actually use the space for a drink sitting at the end of the summer. Are you ready to sit on the porch, drink some lemonade, and soak up some sunshine yet? Spring is just around the corner!
Trays Are the Perfect Base
Consider using a tray for the base of any center piece you put together. When you have a base to your center piece the components you include will have a more cohesive and grouped together look. You’ll be able to pull items from your existing stash of décor, add a few new pieces if you’d like, and voila! You’ve got a new center piece!
Welcome Guests to Your Home
Perhaps you are expecting company for the weekend and need a perfect way to welcome them to the guest bedroom. Style our tray with essentials for them by including items like special soaps, reading materials, some treats, and bottles of water. Be sure to include a framed print out of the wifi password so your guests can really feel at home.
Organize All the Stuff
You’ve probably seen a variety of specialty organizing trays for bedrooms, bathrooms, the insides of drawers, etc. But did you know that you can keep nearly anything organized and looking pulled together and beautiful with the help of a tray? Think about organizing something in plain sight so that it can be a part of your décor. Set out a tray on your island that has pet treats, leashes, etc. Use a tray to hold your coffee making essentials for in the morning so your cup of joe is just moments away when you hit the kitchen.
A good galvanized tray can be readily used for any seasonal holiday décor and can transition from one season to the next with ease. Add hearts for Valentine’s Day, succulents and bunnies for Easter. Add some colorful ribbon to the handles for a festive look. The options are endless.
Clearly a galvanized tray is a must have for around the home. They come in handy and have multiple uses. They can be utilized for serving food and drinks, containing, and organizing, and so much more!
