Altered Printers Tray

I have a printers tray that I bought while on honeymoon............. almost 21 years ago! I've used it for different displays in different rooms over the years. With bits and bobs in the living room and kitchen; and even as a display for small Christmas trinkets. But it's been waiting in my craft-room for a while now as I planned to give it a bit of a spruce up and display some craft goodies in it. However, I changed my mind this morning and decided to decorate it for my bedroom instead, to display some of my smaller perfume bottles along with things I love like keys and maybe even some jewellery.


I'm not sure exactly how I'm going to decorate it, although I do know I don't really want to paint it. You know I just love ribbon, so there will most probably be some involved here again! I will show you what it looks like when it's done.

At the moment it looks like this, so a proper clean is needed first:


There are hundreds of lovely ideas for uses and decorating printers trays out there, but let me just share a few I really like with you:

  1. Hi, I like the first one. And I am curious how yours will turn out. Sad to say but I am too lazy to do such dainty work. But it is always nice to look at what magic other people can do. Back to my crochet work I go... Have a nice crafty day!
