5 Ways to Style a Tiered Tray

How the heck is it Monday already?! That weekend went by way too fast. I need a weekend do-over, anyone else?! I actually shouldn’t complain. It was pretty relaxing around here. We stayed home and tried to do as little as possible, which was a nice break from our normal craziness. I even had time to hit up a couple of vintage sales, although those didn’t amount to much. And we finally did a few much needed things to get ready for this baby. I’m only a few weeks out now, so it’s almost go time. Eek! We’ll chat more about that later, but for now let’s talk about how to style a tiered tray. I have five different ideas to share today! I used the same tiered tray in all five looks so you can really see how versatile and useful one tray can be in your home.

You know I had to take this tray outside. I mean, it is June. I had so much fun playing around with this on our on front porch. It’s the perfect spot for succulents and other garden goodies. (And if you’re curious about that little GARDEN sign, you can see my tutorial for it here.)

This tray is so darn handy for storing all kinds of bathroom necessities. And I love it because it’s much more practical that a flat tray, which actually takes up more countertop space. Easy and practical for the win!

I love the farmhouse vibe happening with this tray and I think the overall look/design makes it a beautiful centerpiece all on its own. All I did here was place a few cloth napkins, a candle, and flowers in it. I wanted to keep it pretty clean to let the design of the tray be the main focus.

    What a fun post…so creative. I am inspired to do a tiered tray in my bathroom, it could use a new look on the counter between the two sinks.

      Thanks Brenda! I love this tray in the bathroom, it’s so handy and takes up less counter space than a tray.

    Great post, Sarah. Love all the styles you did… especially the kitchen one. 🙂 Love the white bowl… Is it real ironstone? It’s purdy no matter what! 😉

    I picked up a narrow 3-tiered tray at our local consignment shop. I’m going to spray paint it, I think a white. It’s going to be perfect for My Wee Abode’s bathroom. 🙂 (Or maybe the kitchen counter?)

    I really like your bathroom mirrors with the white trim around the wood. Where did you get those? I love your blog..and by the way get your Instagram posts daily. I know you asked about that the other day.

      Thanks Wendy! I got those mirror from Home Goods, but they other border was gold so I just painted it white. I wasn’t sure how they’d turn out but I really like it. And thanks for the info on IG, I’m glad my posts are popping up in your feed! So many have said my feed is hidden and they never see my posts anymore. It’s so weird.
