I am the worst when it comes to locating my keys and cell phone. They both seem to go missing every single day! I have been told the best way to keep track of items that go missing is by finding a permanent place for them. I thought this was such a novel idea and decided to create a catchall to house my keys and cell phone!
I bought a paper mache hexagon box quite some time ago and kept waiting for a project idea to come to mind. One day, in an effort to get organized, I decided to remove the lid and use the actual box to store some craft supplies. I looked at the lid and thought: "Why not use the lid as a tray???" This is how my hexagon tray was born! I, of course, could not just leave my tray brown, oh no. I added a splash of color by painting the outside of my lid along with the inside a pretty blue color. I wanted to add a fun pattern to the bottom of my tray, so I grabbed some gold foil scrapbook paper and used my trusty Mod Podge to secure it.
I am so happy with how my catchall turned out. You could leave your tray plain, or your could get totally creative with some paint and paper like I did!
