Hors d’oeuvres and pastries are not the only stuff you can put on your 3 tiered tray.


If you own several of these, pick one that you least use and turn it into an accessory or bling bling holder/ organizer.

You already have most of these in your home so just place ’em all on your worktable :

Olive oil
Contact paper with print / design

I have this 3-tired tray that I wasn’t really crazy about plus it became wobbly. Perfect candidate for repurposing!

If your tray is stainless steel then the best way to clean it is with vinegar. Place some vinegar on your lint free rag and wipe it all through out the stainless steel tray. Remember to also clean underneath the tray.

Then for the shine, use olive oil. Rub olive oil all over the stainless steel portion of the tray and slightly buff it.

Contact paper is a quick make over solution to a lot of different things.


I did not like the finish of the wooden support of the tray so I got some contact paper. I found this beautiful printed contact paper at the dollar store.

Cut up pieces of it. Then I peeled off the paper backing on the contact paper so I can stick it onto the tray support. Make sure when you cut to leave about 1/4 inch extra so the paper can overlap.

If you have to buy contact paper, then choose a print that will match or complement a big portion of your home because definitely you will be using the rest of the roll for other DIYs.

Because the support was tapered and I did not cut it correctly, yah I know I got too lazy to measure properly. So I thought the genius that I am, I could estimate close to perfect. To solve this minor glitch, I just cut a small strip of contact paper and I placed it around the rod at the top and at the bottom to cover-up the wood that was peeping out. Smart eh!

I also cut-up a circular shape for the top of the rod.
