Welcome to Party Junk 253 – upcycled trays

Every Friday, 7PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific

Hello, hello friends! Welcome back to Party Junk, with upcycled trays!

I LOVE TRAYS! They are productive,  make great centrepieces, and save table tops acting as a huge coaster. And they are super easy to make out of nearly anything flat. Just add a handle!

Here are a few upcycled trays I’ve created in the past…

Just add pipe hardware to reclaimed wood for a little industrial detail.

The branch handles steal the show on this reclaimed wood tray. So easy to make!

A few pallet wood planks and a decal stencil is all this one took.

Collect wooden checkerboards and you’ll end up with a tray that’s already decorated.

A little upcycled tongue and groove wood and a decal stencil made this tray come to life.

Don’t overlook the idea of making a lid to something into a tray. A side table, tray AND storage all packed into one.

  1. Thanks so much for the party Donna- this is so timely because I’ve just put a pile of left over planks to the side t create a tray !!!
    Have a great weekend

  2. Hi Donna,
    I love all your trays. I have some pallet wood that I have plans for. Now that my daughter has went off to college…maybe, I can focus on working on those projects. And thank you so much for hosting this lovely party. Have an awesome weekend.

  3. Greetings,

    Thanks for the inspiration, for I know what I’m going to do today, make a tray. I want it to be like a plain small box, but with pictures on it that tell a story. I love your site!

    One Love
