Perfume tray DIY Project...

Today I am going to share another of my DIY projects with you.  While I didn't just do this one (I actually did it awhile back - but I won't tell if you don't!), I did think it was something some of you might be interested in. it is!

This project started because I wanted something I could put my perfume bottles on that wasn't the same ol' vanity tray that you see every where.  I scoured the stores looking for something affordable that would serve this purpose.  My search lead me to this lil' gem of a mirror at Hobby Lobby.  It wasn't to small, it wasn't to was (you know what I am going to say don't you?) just right!

Now I probably could have just sat this mirror straight on the dresser (after removing the hanging hardware) and been done with it.  But that wasn't what I had in mind and when you have something in mind you just gotta go with it!  Since my mind was in charge, it had me pick up some handy wood feet while I was at Hobby Lobby.  I love it when my mind plans ahead and saves me a trip back to the store!  Now, remember earlier when I said that I did this project a while back?  Well - that is the reason I don't have any before pictures of the bare wood feet.  So this picture of them after a coat of black spray paint and a dab of hot glue have been added, will have to do.  As I have said before, you don't really need to see the glue gun do you?

The feet probably could used an additional coat or two of paint, but I am sure no one will notice.

I used 4 feet to ensure the tray was stable and wouldn't tip once the bottles are in place.

Here is the finished project...complete with my favorite perfumes.  Yes, I know one of the bottles is empty, but Roger bought it for me in Paris. (No, not Paris, TX.)  And I LOVED it!  I have looked and looked but haven't found it anywhere else yet.  I guess another trip to Paris, France is in order! Awww, darn!

Hope you like it!
