friday’s five minute fix: use a tray

Have you seen the latest issue of Multiplicity magazine, the must-have resource for moms of twins, triplets and more?  It is absolutely fantastic … and I’m not just saying that because I’m included.  Hee hee hee hee.    

Inside, I shared a favorite five minute fix — using a tray to corral anything and everything!   Trays are the perfect solution for corralling clutter and increasing the presence of pretty objects.   Click over for the article, which includes my top choices for attractive, reasonably priced trays.

I used a West Elm lacquered tray in this gorgeous kitchen.   And what about giving each twin or triplet a tray in his or her own color?  You could stash homework, permission slips and even a lunch box — everything you need to grab on the way to the school bus!

Do you use trays in your home?

    I've always used trays. I suggest trays to my staging clients, too. It is so easy them up when stuff is contained on them instead of scattered on countertops to clean. Love you ideas for each child having their own. Congrats on the magazine article!

    Absolutely!! As a matter of fact.. I just picked up a pretty gold / silver leaf one yesterday from West Elm (like the ones you used in your project) for my coffee table. Can't wait to style it up! Have a great weekend!

    I love trays and am probably bordering on a slight obsession! LOL ! They instantly make "clutter" look more organized. Love it! Annie House on Rene
