Kitchy Metal Tray

Do you use trays? I do. Especially during the warmer months. It makes it so much easier to take food or drinks out to the patio. So, I am always looking for different and unique serving trays to use. I really like to find large ones that just say FUN!

I found this large round painted vintage metal tray recently. Now, it has damage. It was obviously used by it's previous owners. I loved the colors and the fun design and thought it was so perfect to take coffee carafe, cups, and other items out to the patio.



You can see how large it is. I think this was a fun find for $1.00.



Some fun detals. This also shows the wear and tear in the paint. Of course, I made it worse when I tried to scrub it. I ended up scrubbing too hard and took more of the paint off.




I just think it is so fun!




Now check out these fun parties for more treasures!

  18. All I know is that the tray would have been impossible for me to pass up! I love the sayings on it, and the scuffs only give it more character. I just know that you guys must have alot of fun at dinnertime, with your great collection of dishes, and this tray just adds to the fun!
    Happy REDnesday!

  33. I have trays, but never think to use them. I should keep them in a more accessible place. I love the PA Dutch "feel" to this one.
