You’ve probably already seen this DIY remote control tray in my living room. But here’s what it looked like when I bought it at a local estate sale. I can’t tell you exactly how much it cost me because I filled it up with goodies, brought it up to the checkout stand, and the lady charged me $10.00 for the whole pile! With everything else I got at the time, it probably averaged 75c apiece. I love finding little trays like this because there are so many different ways to update them. Trays are on my permanent list of things to find.

How to Make the DIY Remote Control Tray
This was another super easy project. I just gave it a couple of coats of white paint. Let it dry completely then cover it with a light coat of matte varnish.
Then I cut the canvas to fit the bottom and decoupaged it onto the bottom of the tray.
Now it sits on our coffee table next to my upcycled casserole carrier tray and holds our remotes. I’m still not sure what all these do but we need them… lol… The little bell belonged to Bikeman’s grandmother. We tease that he could just ring it when he wants me to bring him something to eat… probably not gonna happen.
