Who needs a place to put those remotes or to add some spark to your tables and love that vintage look then you have got to see this tutorial on this shabby chic DIY tray made from an old fruit basket. So easy to do. You can even add some fall colors and use gold or silver accents.

This is the perfect addition to my coffee table. This would also be really helpful to place glasses on when you're sitting on the couch enjoying a drink!

Omg, so cute! I am definitely saving this tutorial for my sister for her new condo. What a great rustic chic addition!

I love to find new ways to use vintage things and repurpose them. The tray idea is really great for practical use or for dcor. I like the look of a tray on a coffee table. You can add a few stacked books and maybe some greenery and you have a nice look. Or you could use it to corral your remotes. This tray's style would also work in the kitchen. Good tutorial.
