I picked up this perfect serving tray for $4.99 at Saver's a few weeks ago. I considered this one perfect for this project for a couple reasons...1) The tray itself is flat, 2) The plastic handles are easily remove-able with a couple screws. I have been scouring the thrift stores for weeks to find an old Scrabble game with no luck...until last weekend when I stopped by a garage sale and found one for $0.25 cents. Score!!
After giving the tray a good cleaning, I un-screwed and removed both of the plastic handles, with plans to replace them with something more fitting later...
Here they sat to dry.
my train table.
So there you have it...one Christmas present down, many more to go!
