Wooden bed tray with picture frame bottom.

This is an idea I got from my sister in law when I visited her recently.  She had pictures of a previous visit under the glass.  She placed chocolates and flowers on the tray and had it sitting on the bed when I arrived.  I made mine from an inexpensive tray from Wal Mart. 


  • Wooden tray
  • Paint or stain
  • Piece of glass cut to fit the inside of the tray

Step 1.

Finish the tray with paint or stain. 

Step 2.

I took a scrapbook page that fit the bottom of the tray and inserted pictures.  I cut a piece of glass to fit but you can use glass from a picture frame or have a piece cut at a glass store.

Step 3.

Lay the glass on top of the picture page.  The pictures can be changed for each of your guests and the tray really adds a nice personal touch when it is placed on the bed with flowers and candy.  

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
