Upcycled Picture Frame Trays

Upcycled Picture Frame Trays

Share this post

I picked up a couple frames at a garage sale earlier this year, 2 for $.75.  The wood was substantial and the pictures were set back, I knew I would use them for something eventually.

Picture frames before

This week I found a use.  In my living room, which is still pretty bare, we have a large leather ottoman that functions as a little bit of everything.  It is little lady’s preferred spot to watch TV and do puzzles.  It’s a footrest, a table, and general catchall.  It has a few tufted areas which does not make it a good spot for a drink or dish.

I decided to take these frames and turn them into trays – functional trays.

Upcycled Picture Frames

I started by priming and painting the frames a satin black.  Then I removed the pictures and covered the backing with a pretty yellow and white paper.

Picture covering

I assume these will get more use by little lady than anyone else so to keep them looking nice I covered the pretty paper with clear contact paper.

The sides of these trays are nice and deep so they will corral whatever we can spill in them.

A quick and easy upcycled project.
