Decorative Tray.

You may have seen these images before, but have you seen the details behind those great orange and white chevron trays?

I would have never have guessed, but they are cookie sheets covered with fabric!  How great of an idea is that?  (And I love the greek key ribbon bookmark peeking out from that book.)

You can watch the how-to video on Martha Stewart's website.  It's super simple:  just use spray adhesive to cover the tray in fabric and then put a piece of felt on the bottom.  She also had a piece of acrylic cut to size to set in the tray, but depending on what you planned to put on it, you could skip that step. 

I have several baking sheets that have seen better days in the kitchen, but would look fabulous covered in fabric!

  10. Shut the front door!!! I just threw out a nasty cookie sheet. Ok . . so so cute. And I am looking for a light weight one to put on our ottoman so if a toddler meets it, we won't be in the ER again. GENIUS. Doing this soon. Thanks, girl!

  13. I made one! You can read about my adventure on my blog! I really recommend skipping the acrylic. I've already spilled diet coke on the fabric and it comes out with spot shot!:)
