With Mother's Day soon approaching, we had fun coming up with our latest project — making a decorative tray perfectly fitting for a Mother's Day breakfast in bed surprise. We love how it all came together and you can find the full DIY tutorial featured over on eHow today right here.
A tray like this could made from a variety of different materials — ours came from a piece of reclaimed wood that my grandfather had made as a leaf for a table we no longer have in the family. It had been sitting around, really just taking up space, so this project was a really fun way to transform the board into something functional we'll put into regular use.
The best part? Not only is this DIY tray perfect for breakfast in bed, it can double as a laptop try or decorative and functional storage solution for your ottoman or coffee table.
Check out the full project featured over on eHow to learn how to make a tray of your own — we'd love to know if you give it a try and what other plans you have in mind for Mother's Day.
