Trays are the handiest of things around a home. They corral clutter on a desk, vanity or bathroom counter. They carry meals from stovetop to dining area. They're your small space liquor bar on the coffee table. And in your entryway, they're the catchall for keys, mail and wallets. The tray's usefulness seems endless!
My favorite feature is the tray's wonderful knack for making clutter appear magically tidy. I always place a large tray on the bathroom counter for house guests for their toiletries, personal care and jewelry. It makes them feel more at ease because they have their own designated space in the bathroom. Plus, it keeps messy house guests from taking over the bathroom.
