  1. I love this idea, Lora! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm–pinned!

      Thanks for pinning, Cecilia!

  2. My grandmother had those very trays. Such a clever idea for upcycling them, Lora!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Marie! I only had 3 of this type, so this was the perfect solution!

  3. I love how your tiered stand turned out Lora! Those floral trays are so pretty. I’ve made a few tiered stands and vertical storage is always great, especially in my craft room. Love the use of the spindles.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Tuula! Yes, going vertical is a space saver!

  4. What are great idea! I’m always looking for ways to stack stuff higher and deeper! What a great way to upcycle crib spindles, too! I always love your ideas.

      Thanks, Kathy! Glad you liked it!

    What a pretty tiered stand! The trays are so pretty — for some reason I never see them around here:( Love those spindles, too. Great job. xo Kathleen

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Estate sales are the place to find them around here, Kathleen. Sometimes thrift stores, too. Thx!

  6. This turned out so well, Lora! I like the distressing you did on the spindles, too. It looks great. How would I used a tiered tray like this? I might integrate it into my home office for an inbox to keep papers sorted and organized until they’re dealt with!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      That’s exactly how I was picturing it being used, Sheila. Maybe because I’m so challenged in that area!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Laura!

  7. This turned out so great, Lora! You’ve transformed the trays into a functional, great looking piece now! I even like the look upside down, too…a two-fer!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I guess you’re right, Linda! Thx!

  8. I love this idea Lora! It turned out great! I used to have quite a few of those trays, I’ll definitely be collecting them again now! I might use it in my craft studio!!

      Yes, it would be great to corral craft supplies, Tania!
