Back in January, I wrote about reusing common household items for new storage purposes.
That prompted fellow organizer Audrey Lavine to write to me about old typeset trays; the one shown above belongs to a friend of hers. Audrey suggests they work well for craft supplies - for buttons and beads and such. (She also puts a piece of glass on top and uses them for coffee tables.)
You can see more examples of typeset trays in use over on Sweet and Shabby Jullie's World, Paper & Crazy, and Craft and Chaos.
You can find these printers trays for sale on places like eBay and craigslist, and also through antique dealers. The one above is currently being offered by GoAntiques.com. Another nice-looking tray just got sold in New Zealand.
And Audrey isn't the only one to turn typeset trays into tables.
