Adding some PIZAZZ to a plain black tray!

 Crafty I am not, but I think I gave this plain black tray a little pizazz when I added this black and white zig zag(Chevron) fabric to the inside of it.
 I even finished it off with some white roping. After cutting the fabric to size I used Mod Podge to glue it to the tray. The Mod Podge didn't work to well with the white roping so I used my glue gun for that.
I bought the fabric and roping in Hobby Lobby.
 Now Mackenzie has a spot to gather some of her favorite things. 
See that white ceramic box, I made that in ceramics class at least 30 years ago. She uses it for all her earrings.
Much cuter for a teenager's room, don't you think!
Hope your all having a super week...there is snow in our forecast for today and tonight:(

That chevron pattern is perfect for that tray. It really dresses it up and will make it much more "hip" for your daughters room now.

Wow, pizzazz indeed. I have always wanted to dress up some trays but never thought to use roping to make it look so finished. Now I must try it. Thanks for the idea.

Hi Martina,

I love your black tray and it's styled perfectly. I've been looking for one for my coffee table.. The monogrammed ones are SO expensive. Yours is just perfect! Have a nice weekend!
