If you haven’t started following Jane’s blog The Borrowed Abode then you are missing out! In her blog, Jane explores living in and decorating a rental space, but I assure you that you do not need to be a renter to enjoy what she presents. A couple of weeks ago she blogged here about how to “scape the table” and decorate with beautiful trays. I often have difficulty with the “layering” of it all when decorating so this was the perfect blog post for me. So last week, I shot her an email and asked if she would mind if I tried my hand at decorating with a new tray I found at Ikea and then shared her ideas with you. She said to go for it, so Jane, this is for you!
First, grab yourself a tray. I found this gorgeous one at Ikea for $10.00 two weekends ago:

Here’s what it looks like on our very vintage mid-century modern tables that I love, and that need some serious TLC.
