LAYERED TRAYS


I spent a good deal of time yesterday  devouring all of the One Room Challenge completed rooms.  Did you have a favorite?  I know I'll be poring over all of the linked up rooms today as well.  Such creative inspiration! This series always makes me ready to take on a new challenge.  Soon....

A good tray can be one of the hardest-working accessories there is.  Layering objects is one of the best decorating tricks there is.  So, how about putting those two things together?

For a while I used one of my oversized trays to corral some things in the corner on my kitchen cabinet.  I added a smaller tray inside to define the space even a little more.



Some other beautiful examples of this styling concept:

I think this idea is interesting and festive: a tiered stand stacked in a tray!

Have you ever styled a tray inside a tray?
